Narberth museum

Narberth museum

Narberth is a town and community in Pembrokeshire. It was founded around a Welsh court, but later became a Norman stronghold on the Landsker Line. It became the headquarters of the hundred of Narberth and was once a marcher borough. In 2011, the population was 2,150, of which a third are Welsh-speaking. Narberth is close to the A40 trunk road and is on the A478. Narberth railway station is on the main line from Swansea.
Narberth has gained the reputation as a lovely little market town in the east of Pembrokeshire. Independent shops selling a whole range of exquisite items line the high street, from fine art to fine vintage and antique shops. There are award-winning cafes, pubs and restaurants to explore too.

The museum

Since 2012, Narberth Museum’s home has been the Bonded Stores,  a building with a purpose – to keep people out. Stored inside would have been hundreds of kegs full of valuable but duty-free whisky, brandy and rum. Only when the Revenue Officer and the Stores Manager were both present with their keys could the double locks be opened. The new Narberth Museum has chosen the symbol of the two keys as its logo – but now those same heavy doors are are thrown open and everyone is welcome to discover for themselves the treasures within
An extensive exhibition space tells the story of the town and its’ people over the centuries, while a temporary exhibition area gives you the opportunity to view items in their collection not on permanent display. It also allows them to host visiting exhibitions and to vary the Narberth Museum experience.
