Fodor's Expert Review Holyhead Maritime Museum

Holyhead Museum/Gallery

Inside Wales's oldest lifeboat house, built in 1858, on the water's edge, you can learn about Holyhead's martime history and traditions. Glass cabinets display a wealth of related artifacts, including model ships, medals, Victorian scuba gear, and captured French cannons, with further information given by the museum's eager guides. An attached annex focuses on Holyhead's experiences in the two world wars. A bistro with an outdoor deck serves coffee and baguette sandwiches.
