Home Front Museum - Review

Imagine a museum taking you back in time and literally letting you experience how life used to be during the bleakest time in history, the Second World War. Step into a portal and witness 6 years of war through the sights and sounds inside the museum and discover how it was won on the home front.

To witness this era of horror and how the people at home dealt with it while the cadets were in the front lines, you must take a tour at the Home Front Museum at Llandudno.

Frank Meredith opened a garage and taxi business in 1919 with his sons and by 1940 a part of this building was used by the Auxiliary Fire service. Volunteers were trained in firefighting duties and other aspects of defence. Meredith Taxis and garage closed around 1960. It changed ownership a number of times and finally in 1999 it was acquired to house the Home Front Experience, a museum which not only provides a unique insight into the hardship of daily life during this trying period, but one filled with nostalgia and memories as well.

Upon entering the museum, you will find several colourful room displays. Care has been taken by the curator Adrian Hughes to include accurate details that portray the simplicity during that era. Each room depicts a story during the war through statues, props and beautifully designed backdrops.

Here you’ll learn the lesser known stories of World War II’s unsung heroes, those who toiled at the home front. The teacher trying earnestly to make her pupils take interest and divert their attention from reality.

The nurse manning the kitchen and medical supplies, the collection of artefacts and tableaux, the ration books and gas masks are all on display. You are allowed to take pictures as well. Once you leave the museum, you’ll be glad you visited.

Home Front Museum, Llandudno Reviews

  • Great little place. It’s also dog friendly! I took my daughter here while on a short stay in Llandudno, as she had been learning about WW2 in school. It’s well put together and educational, but very small! Even though it was around £5.50 for both of us to get in, I would still say that it’s overpriced for what it is. It takes about 25 minutes to walk around the exhibits.

  • Fantastic Museum, very interesting stuff and very well displayed... seeing what was available on rations and how people lived during the war years is a real eye opener. would recommend this museum to everyone... only £3.50 for an adult entry.

  • Very interesting place to visit . It's a little museum that tells you the history of WW1 &WW2.

  • Very interesting museum showing the civilian side of the war rather than the military. Spent a few minutes in the Anderson shelter imagining what it must have been like with all the bombs dropping nearby.

  • Hidden gem first class staff friendly and brilliant
