The Pembroke Dock Heritage Centre is simply marvellous, staff are great and some of them can tell you great stories, the Sunderland cockpit is a basic simulator and worth ago, easily spend some quality time and some Star Wars Millennium Falcon trivia to.

Went on a rainy day. An interesting place with loads of details about the Sunderland flying boats and other aspects of Pembroke Dock's involvement with the war. Staffed by, I assume, volunteers all with justifiable passion in their museum.

We were lucky enough to come across an ad for this little gem in one of the Pembrokeshire tourist magazines. As today was a mixed weather day we decided to go and have a look. We were very happy we had. The building is a large converted chapel in the middle of Pembroke dock area, and is full to the brim with interesting artifacts and models documenting the history of the docks as well as a host of information on both WW1 and WW2 particularly focussing on the aircraft involved, particularly the Sunderland boat plane. Our kids (8 and 6) really enjoyed looking at all the wonderful models and also the mock-up of the WW1 trenches. There is also a really fascinating flight simulator which "takes you" in a Sunderland from take off (from water at Pembroke dock) around the area and then back down to land. All the instruments are working as if you are flying. Due to Covid restrictions, we couldn't sit in it, but we could watch the whole manoeuvre as a family group. The museum was quiet (we went early) so we practically had the place to ourselves and could really take in the information. Another highlight was the workshop area where volunteers are restoring parts from a Sunderland which sank and was resurfaced recently. You could see the barnacles on the propeller and other parts. There has to be a special mention for the volunteers who show you around. They are wonderful gentlemen who are obviously brimming with information and are keen to talk you through the exhibit. They were a joy to talk to. There is a little coffee shop at the end. We had a reasonably priced delicious coffee. All in all, we all agreed that it was a wonderful museum and we would happily recommend it and return for another visit.

A great little museum. Kept my two teenage girls interested for three hours so much that they missed the coffee shop. There is so much here do to with flying and flying boats. A cockpit that you can sit in with a video screen and working instruments, brilliant. Also first world war trench reenactments, guns! Machine gun and Lee Enfield smle mk3. Picnic area outside enclosed and quiet so children can play. An excellent and interesting place a short walk from what is signed as a martello fort and watch the ships and boats come and go.
