MY VISIT TO THE WEST WALES MUSEUM OF CHILDHOOD, Llangeler, U.K.

Yesterday I had a very memorable visit to the WEST WALES MUSEUM OF CHILDHOOD in Llangeler, Carmarthenshire, Wales. You can see the Museum on their website at: www.toymuseumwales.co.uk
We were warmly welcomed by Hilary and her husband Paul Kennelly, the owners of the Museum. The buildings the Museum are housed in are around 300 years old and in them can be found displays of wonderful old toys, household items, dolls, prams and dolls houses, a Television and Film Gallery and an old classroom display featuring 150 year-old desks from the original school at nearby Cenarth, etc., etc. There is so much to see there but you can always take a break with refreshmments in the Tea Room and Gift Shop, which is also on the site!

I have added this post with the kind permission of Hilary and Paul, owners of THE WEST WALES MUSEUM OF CHILDHOOD, Pen-ffynon, Llangeler, Carmarthenshire SA44 5EY - U.K.
I thoroughly recommend a visit to the Museum. You will be amazed at the displays of 10,000 exhibits!
