Penmaenmawr Museum

A grey brick one-storey cottage on a sunny day

Built in the 1840s these were amongst the first properties built in Penmaenmawr to house quarry workers.

Recently restored, the ground floor of No. 4 houses a small museum on the quarrying industry and the growth of Penmaenmawr in the 19th Century. Using figurines, photographs, original objects and interactive displays, the museum gives a snapshot of life in a Welsh industrial community.

Find out why the cottages were called New York, discover how Penmaenmawr became a major tourist resort, work out how 10 people lived in this small house, and try on typical period dress.
