Just taken a look at some Trip Advisor reviews and read this!

The Museum is going to be part of the GO North Wales Great Days Out pull-out publication for 2024.

Our individual leaflet was distributed in late May and through the summer, within a radius of about 15 miles and has been a terrific success.

Spreading our promotional wings with the Great Days Out Leaflet, this means a pan North Wales exposure throughout next year.

Today we say Happy 75th birthday to
His Majesty King Charles.

To celebrate this milestone, he and the Queen, will be launching the Coronation Food pact. The aim is to reduce waste production.

Here in the museum there are cookery books on recipes for every part of an animal and fowl.

Anyone remember eating tripe and onions in the post-war austerity years?

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

So today is a gathering of AI (artificial intelligence ) hi tech minds at Bletchley Park where the Enigma code was cracked in WW2.

Alun Turing was the mastermind in cracking the code. A brilliant mathematical mind. The gathering will be next to his office which the public can visit.

A homosexual, who had to hide his sexuality due to it being illegal and eventually, he committed su***de.

A picture of Alan Turing is on a £50 note.. if you get to see one!!

Visit our museum and read about him in our LBGTQ section.

Need an idea where to take your kids during half-term?

The 1950’s Museum will transport than back in time before the invention of game consoles, electronic gadgets. When playing outside in the street was the norm, TV had one channel and the take-away was Mum’s span sandwiches.

Bug Alert!! An epidemic in Paris is finding its way here to the U.K.

The Local Authority in Luton is receiving increasing cases of these pesky critters in bedding.

Good advise is on Government website. Not easy to eradicate and in extreme cases mattresses have to be replaced.

This is why hotel room rates are high. There is a cost to changing bedding when a guest departs.

If rate is too cheap there has to be cost cuttings somewhere and it might not be management salary.
