Min welcomed us in for free as an apology for recently vacated film students leaving the Tin Shed a mixture of new and old products. Instead the experience was even more rewarding. Knowledge and stories were shared about ancestors and locals and how they lived through the wars. This is an amazing experience. Do not miss it. Your visit will be as unique as ours due to Min and Simeon. Great storytellers and historians.

We turned up but it was closed - the door was open and the curator let us in anyway and didn't charge us, which was very kind of him. Some students were putting on a show. The collection is interesting and well worth the visit. I especially liked the cottage/ kitchen over the war memorabilia and the story behind why they set the museum up is heartwarming.

Interesting versatile space, owners are lovely and have lots of stories to share about the history of the area. Very much enjoyed taking a look around and getting to know Laugharne a bit better!

Absolutely great place, run by really enthusiastic lovely people. The collection is great and by the sounds of it ever expanding. Really informative and doesn't glamourise the spectacle of war. Definately worth a visit to the Tin Shed and I myself will most certainly return in the future.

Most war time museums focus on the cold fact sand leave you detached from the sense of what happened. Not the Tin Shed. A beautiful small experience run by people who care and want you you feel rather than know what happened, a great experience for any age
