Old Bell Museum
The Old Bell, a 16th century inn, has been converted into a local history museum by Montgomery Civic Society. Run by volunteers, it is the winner of a Prince of Wales Award.
Eleven rooms house displays illustrating the long social and civic history of the ancient County Town of Montgomeryshire. There are permanent exhibitions relating to the medieval and Norman castles and their archaeological excavations, with excellent scale models of both. Two rooms are devoted to the Workhouse and the Cambrian Railway. A small room in the museum has been restored to demonstrate the various methods of construction in this half timbered building.
