The Museum is the childhood home of Sir Henry Jones (1852 – 1922) who, from humble origins, became an eminent Professor of Moral Philosophy at Glasgow University and a major influence on the education system in Wales.

Visit this fascinating museum of Welsh rural life and find out about Henry Jones and the story of his struggle for education. Wander through the tiny kitchen and bedroom where the family of six ate and slept, and see the displays on Victorian life in a typical Welsh Community. Listen to the conversation of the ‘shoemakers’ as they work, and relax in the authentically restored cottage garden.
