Parc Howard Museum

Parc Howard Museum reopened to visitors on Saturday 2 December. Initially, the ground floor has opened to the public, with the first floor reopening in 2024.


You'll be amazed at the lovely changes that have taken place.


The iconic tower, roof and porch have been restored, and systems upgraded throughout. When we open in the coming months, you'll discover a brand-new accessible visitor reception with gift shop selling hot drinks, snacks, and ice creams. 


The refurbished galleries will have new exhibitions that have been created through community projects, highlighting stories of Llanelli’s communities. We want to make Parc Howard Museum a home for family-friendly displays that will bring the history of Llanelli to life.


Carmarthenshire County Council and Llanelli Town Council have funded the project.
