This is a small (but perfectly formed!) local museum housed in Tredegar Library, which stands in the shadow of the famous Tredegar Town clock. The museum is run by the Tredegar History and Archive Society, who are all unpaid volunteers.
The museum has a small but important collection of artefacts detailing the town’s heritage, including its importance in the iron, steel and coal industries. There is also a special emphasis on Tredegar as the birthplace of the founder of the NHS, Aneurin Bevan. The museum also hosts an excellent collection of historic photographs of the local area.
The Tredegar History and Archive Society meets in Tredegar Library every Wednesday afternoon at 2.00 p.m. There are various activities, including illustrated talks, and new members are always welcome.
Featured Exhibitions and Displays include:
Historic Photographs Aneurin Bevan and the National Health Service Local Churches and Chapels Local Industries Historic Radios and Cameras World War I and II Memorabilia
Friday: 10.00-13.00 14.00-16.30
