Unfortunately could not find the Museum/Centre, however I wanted to post a review because this bridge is a fantastic monument to British Civil Engineering. There are great photo opportunities from both ends of the bridge and also on the roadside when you approach from the Brittania Bridge. Stop and look in awe of what was achieved all those years ago, whenever you are in the area.

This little gem of a museum is tucked away in the old church hall and offers a unique interpretation of the history of both bridges and the town of Menai Bridge. Shouldn't take too long to look around and I would suggest then taking a walk down to the bridges to see their spectacular setting and to fully appreciate the feat of engineering that went into their design and construction. There are also weekly boat trips to the bridges from Beaumaris which give an extra special view of the bridge from underneath!
