In the last six months Powysland Museum, located in Welshpool has undergone a number of changes to enhance the visitor experience and to create access to more of the museum’s collections.
The Museum displays the history and development of life in Montgomeryshire from the earliest prehistoric settlers to the 20th century population. Displays range from agriculture, transport, archaeology, toys and photography.
Outside the museum there is an eye catching display of two large herons created by local artist Roger Williams.
Inside, the museum’s reception desk has been rebuilt and enlarged so it is now a proper workspace as well as a welcoming introduction to the museum.
In the museum’s permanent galleries on the first floor additional items have been added to the WW1 and WW2 exhibitions and there are some completely new displays on ‘Welsh Ladies’, the Eisteddfod and Laura Ashley.
For opening times and further information, visit their website.
Wales offers a wide selection of Museums to suit all tastes. To find out more, click here.
