Permanent Collection

As both the mythical court of Pwyll, Prince of Dyfed, in the ancient tales of the Mabinogion and the bustling 19th Century  market town , Narberth has a long and fascinating history.

Its legend is told at Narberth Museum, through a diverse collection of artifacts, an archive of documents and social history, vibrant interpretation and interactive activities.

A scale model of the castle will help you visualise what once stood on the site of Narberth’s ruined castle and an interactive game illustrates the tactics used in medieval siege warfare.

A working scale model of the station is set up with trains running to an original timetable or walk the streets of turn-of-the-century Narberth and experience some of the shops that were around at the time.

One of the most popular areas of the museum for young families is our Mabinogion woodland glade. As well as explaining the story of the Mabinogion through interpretive panels it includes a storytelling chair where children can listen to welsh folk stories in English and Welsh. There are also puzzles and games for younger children to play with.

As well as our permanent collection, there is a programme of temporary or visiting exhibitions throughout the year.
