Steeped in real history!

Large car park and a small museum packed with real history. Okay it's small and you'll not spend hours here. But I've been a few times now and always love coming back. The staff... read more

Large car park and a small museum packed with real history. Okay it's small and you'll not spend hours here. But I've been a few times now and always love coming back. The staff are second to none and are happy to talk first hand memories and facts for hours! It's worth remembering this place has it's impact on the... More

We arrived in a coach with 35 dissabled people and their carers. Firstly we had a background talk and a mug of tea in their welcome hall We were then shown a recondition engine belonging to a 1940's aircraft. Beyond that room were more rooms full of World War 2 memrobilia. We were then taken to the reinstated Contol Tower.... More

Absolute brilliance from the volunteers who run the tower! Very informative and so easy to listen to! Much is to come from such a little known part of history! This needs to be a huge part of British heritage! Needs to be recognised by all.

A coach load of people were coming to Pe,mbrokeshire and wanted a guided tour - I took them to Carew Control Tower. As we arrived they said they did not want to go in, however, I couldn't get them from the place. A small group even travelled all the way back the following day. A thoroughly good pl;ace to visit.

A real war time air field with a real war time control tower brimming with war time memorabilia. Large car park and run by real enthusiasts. This is well worth a visit either if you remember the Battle of Britain or are just interested. It is not huge and you won't spend the whole day there, but it is extremely... More

Interesting for a hour inside an old control tower, laid out as in use during WWII. Photographs and people to relay info. A few parts of old war planes, nothing complete, but free. If you visit in main season there is Carew Market on Saturdays indoors and out to pick up a bargain or two.

This must be one of the smallest museums I have ever visited but also one that I will never forget. Why the reason is very simple, everyone who is involved in the running and maintenance of this facility can speak in the first person, they know what happened, they know who lived and died here and to sit and listen...

There were several gentlemen around on the day we visited and they took the time to tell us about the exhibits, the museum and the local area. The control tower has been remarkably brought back to life and they are keen to continue this work and restore an Avro Anson.
