The Museum evolved from the custom that members of the Historical Society would bring items to their regular monthly meetings for discussion.

About the Museum

All the exhibits on display are either donated or on loan from members of the local community in Cefn Mawr and the wider area. The Museum contains various sections, each of which focuses on an aspect of community life: Village Life, Schools, Industry, Transport, the Canal and the River Dee, War Memorabilia, Churches and Chapels, Sport, Music and Art.

As well as offering a good collection of artefacts, photos and documents, the Museum also has audio-visual facilities to show videos and play music related to the life of the community and its people.

Most interesting and thoughtfully arranged. Keep up the good work. Lovely and skilled helpers giving their time.
