Parc Howard Museum
Parc Howard Museum will be reopening to visitors on Saturday 2 December, 10:30am - 3:30pm. Initially, the ground floor will open to the public, with the first floor reopening in 2024.
Opening hours from then on will be:
2 December 2023 to 31 March 2024, open Thursday to Sunday, 10:30am – 3:30pm
1 April 2024 onwards will be longer opening hours
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.
