We popped along out of season and at evening but we still were enjoying the little sneak preview . We wanted to buy a ticket just for the experience but was unable to due to it being late. (we are used to Birmingham being open 24-7) we will pop in next time we are local.

This lovely little museum, situated in the original ticket office and waiting room at Borth Railway station, is a real gem. As soon as you enter this nostalgic setting you are transported back to times gone by. We received a warm welcome from George and Josie who are volunteers and founders of the tiny museum. Their knowledge and enthusiasm is... More

You will see that people have holidayed in Borth for about 150 years. Well, I've visited many times over the last 60 years so know the place well. Borth is a very rare village built on a shingle bank. The Station Museum was opened about 5 years ago (we were there for the opening!). Its open for the spring /... More

This small museum is housed in the restored station building and contains a lot of interesting historical information on the Welsh coast line and the renovation of the buildings back to their former glory after 30 years of neglect. Quite impressive that it was all done and continues to be run by volunteers. It's not worth making a special trip... More

My daughter and I had a look around the museum with great interest.The station is not manned so the museum staff are there to tell you all about the steam trains of yesteryear which was good to know.There are a few souvenirs you can buy too such as note pads and pens.Really memorable visit.

My family were staying in Borth on a weekend break and wandered into the station to find information about train times to Aberystwyth; we had no idea that there was a museum. The staff were extremely friendly and knowledgeable and my children were really fascinated. The work that the volunteers have put in is truly fantastic. Well worth popping in... More
