The Lloyd George museum is situated in the heart of Llanystumdwy, the village where Lloyd George was brought up as a child. The museum itself tells the story of his life, from humble beginnings, to becoming one of the greatest British statesmen of the twentieth century. He is known as the man who; taxed the rich to help the poor, gave women the vote, introduced National Insurance and Old Age Pensions, led the country to victory during the First World War, and was instrumental during the peace talks at Versailles.Visitors can also step back in time and visit the Victorian cottage Highgate, his boyhood home, and his Uncle's shoemaker's workshop next door, which is joined to the Museum by a footpath through a Victorian Cottage garden.His grave is also located in the village, just a short walk up the drive from the Museum, he is buried in the woods above the river Dwyfor. We advise visitors that they may need at least an hour and a half for their visit, as there is the Museum itself to see, the cottage Highgate, and also a half hour film summarising his life and achievements.

Driven past village many times and always promised ourselves that we'd call in to museum. So much more than we'd imagined that we're planning a return visit as we didn't have the time to do it justice. The video is a must as it clearly shows what a truly great man he was - intelligent, passionate, with a humorous and... More

What a valuable and worthy museum. As a welsh woman with my entire upbringing in Welsh schools and universities, this is the first real education I have had in relation to Lloyd George - and what a magnificent story you have shared. A comprehensive and thoughtful museum, with literature, artefacts, film, recreations, and materials for children. The whole experience was... More

This fascinating place gives a really good insight into one of Britain's great political figures. Though the museum is relatively small it is packed with a massive amount of information, which is presented in a variety of ways. I found the Victorian school room and the cobbler's shop - with their audio-visual displays - particularly interesting. I learned a lot... More

I would reintegrate what others have said this is a a really interesting museum and very good value. It might seem maudlin but one of the high spots of the place is Lloyd Georges grave which is a short walk from the museum itself. Set on the banks of the River Dwyfor (not in the churchyard) it is a beautiful... More

A really interesting museum which includes written descriptions, personal items, documents, photographs, paintings and a film show. the really low price of £5 for adults, £4 for over 65's & children. The price includes a visit to his cottage (Highgate). There is even a play area for children. I found the staff really helpful and informative.

I think it's worth the visit here. It's also the cutest most loveliest village ever - perfect scenery.

Great amount of detail on the history of David Lloyd George. Detail of birth, education, and life as a politician and his family life. There is also a short film, the film contains a summary of the information in the museum. At the back of the house is the cottage where Lloyd George lived as a child and up a... More

Went here when on camping holiday and my daughter is covering Lloyd George next term in school. The museum is small but has so much to see and tonnes of information, that covers his whole life. There is a great interactive area for young children which will keep them busy for ages. The museum is linked to Lloyds original home... More

I learned a lot about the man who was probably Winston Churchill's equal in WW1. He should be recognized as one of the great leaders of England in the twentieth century. More prominence should be given to this museum.

Knowing nothing whatsoever about David Lloyd George, a recent visit to the museum in Llanystumdwy dedicated to his life was a perfect way to learn about this inspirational man. With audio recordings of his powerful speeches, personal items and photographs along with a video documentary and comprehensive information boards relating to both his public and private life, there is a...
