There is a lot to see and do here no matter the age. The museum has interactive things for children we loved playing with every thing.

If you're into a little history, this museum is a little gem. It displays, animates and video's the history of Tenby. Takes about an hour and costs £4.95 which will give you admission valid for one year.
