Maes Artro Heritage Museum
The place where all the family can re-live the experience of events and times of the 20th Century. Maes Artro Heritage Centre aims to give you and your family a great day out.
The site includes lots of attractions starting with the Royal Air Force Museum, where you can trace the history of RAF Llanbedr and take a close look at the years during World War II and this continues in the Home Front Exhibition at the Village Hall.
Out in the park you will find more fighting vehicles and aircraft on display, including the kids playground and picnic area. The Rural Heritage Museum takes you back in time to see how people lived their daily lives before the electrical revolution.
In the Yester Years museum, you walk through and experience a re-created Welsh Village street from the 1900s with its rich sights and sounds of daily life
Maes Artro Restaurant
Enjoy a relaxing break in the Maes Artro Restaurant serving hot and cold drinks, snacks and home cooked meals. They are now also fully licensed so you can enjoy a drink with your meal and there’s nothing better than a cold pint on a hot day. Meanwhile, the kids can choose from the colourful kids-Menu so they won’t feel left out either.
Outdoors With Maes Artro Living History Museum
Take a relaxing walk through the woodland nature trail or enjoy one of the many picnic areas. On the rolling green fields you can wander around the military vehicles including a real Chieftain Tank and a Self Propelled Abbot Gun (newly renovated), whilst the children enjoy the wild west log fort, assault course, sandpit and toddlers play area. You can also get up close and personal with our Air Sea Rescue Whirlwind Helicopter and see the recently restored replica Spitfire used in the TV series ‘Piece of Cake’. Or get your photo taken next to the awesome Bofors Anti-aircraft gun parked by our main entrance.
