New Roof!

Posted by Tenby Museum on Sep 2, 2020 Blog No Comments

Pembrokeshire County Council are taking the opportunity to replace the older parts of the roof of Tenby Museum and Art Gallery over the original National School and the art gallery built in the 1970s. This work will be done during September.

Extensive scaffolding is needed to carry out the work and in order to deliver the materials access to Castle Hill will be limited with no parking for a few days. The disruption is unavoidable and the work is essential to ensure the safety of the museum’s collections.

The building was originally constructed in 1830s, became a museum in 1878 and while the roof is not that old it has shown some wear and tear – sometimes there have been puddles in the museum – and this moisture could potentially cause damage to our many valuable artefacts and archives.

Tenby Museum and Art Gallery is presently closed to our visitors – it has not proved possible to open with the restrictions of Covid-19, and the importance of keeping our visitors, volunteers and staff safe. However, we are still working hard away from the museum and can be followed on Facebook and Twitter and will look forward to welcoming locals and visitors again in 2021.
