Housed in a converted chapel built in 1861, the centre tells the story of the town and its people.

A new audio-visual programme explains the origins of the chapels and traces the influence of Welsh Dissent at home and overseas. A large panoramic painting shows the town and the surrounding area as it would have appeared 150 years ago.

Among the exhibits in a section on the musical history of the town is a life size figure of Sir Geraint Evans dressing to sing 'Falstaff'. Use of audio-visual programmes and ‘hands on’ exhibits illustrate elements of social, military, sporting and cultural history, as well as industry and transport.
