The Iron Age

The Romans

World War 2

Or based on a temporary exhibition

Workshops will include presentations, activities and handling items as well as opportunities to dress up. Please contact us to see if we can accommodate your needs.

Making a booking

In order to get the most out of your visit it is essential that you book in advance by contacting the Museum   (01492) 876517 or email info@llandudnomuseum.co.uk

Once a booking has been made, we will send you an email confirming your booking, together with any relevant details and risk assessments.

On Arrival

Coaches drop and collect groups directly outside the front entrance but there is no allocated parking space or pull in area. The group leader is asked to give the total number visiting at the reception desk.

Toilets

Presently we have one toilet available located on the ground level. We presently do not have Cloakroom for school groups.  We recommend leaving all coats and bags near the reception desk.

Photography

No photography symbol

Photography for school use is allowed in all of the galleries except where this symbol is displayed. We have a set of 6 digital cameras that your group may loan for the duration of your visit and images will be downloaded on sent to your school on a CD after your visit.

Drawing and painting in the galleries

Art materials in normal use are not harmful to the galleries and displays, however, sharp edges of boards and pointed pens and pencils can damage frames, unglazed paintings and items on open display. Colouring materials and adhesives can cause damage if accidentally dropped onto works of art, objects, walls or floors.

Please take the following precautions:

  • Please keep all paints, crayons, pencils, pens and pastels etc. away from the walls, objects and works of art. If you are taking part in a workshop using paints, charcoal, pastels etc we will provide floor protection and painting aprons.
  • Please keep all drawing boards and clipboards away from works of art and display cases.

Lunch

We do not yet have a room to eat your lunch and suggest that in fine weather lunch can be eaten outside. However, in inclement weather pupils are allowed to use the ground floor temporary exhibition space and we will provide floor protection and a bin bag. Please try and ensure that spillages are kept to the very minimum as the Museum is open to the public so inconvenient to have to use cleaning equipment during open hours.

The Museum Shop

There is a shop with small toys, educational material and activity kits. A range of books, postcards and gifts is also available. We ask all schools to please help with supervision of the children if you wish to purchase items from the Shop. 

Preview visits

These are available for teachers and group leaders wishing to familiarise themselves with Llandudno Museum. Please telephone to make arrangements beforehand if you want to speak to the Museum Education Officer on the day of your preview visit.
