Tenby Museum was founded in 1878 by a group of interested gentlemen; it is now the oldest independent museum in Wales. The building is Grade II listed and situated in part of the old town castle. There is a small coffee bar in the entrance hall overlooking Carmarthen Bay. The museum is widely recognised throughout Pembrokeshire as being an outstanding example of its kind and has strong support from the Friends organisation.
