The museum is a fascinating experience for the whole family. Step back in time at the oldest lifeboat station in Wales (circa. 1858), which houses a wonderful collection of exhibits that tells the fascinating maritime history of Holyhead.

The museum houses a variety of artifacts including crockery recovered from the Irish Sea bed, and large board room models of the vessels that sailed from Holyhead to Dún Laoghaire and Greenore. The exhibits cover the maritime and social history of the town from the Iron Age up to the present day. A part of the museum's complex is the permanent exhibition "Holyhead at War" housed in a Second World War air raid shelter situated alongside the Maritime Museum.
