Experience a Unique Pembrokeshire Museum

I'd just like to thank you all so much for another fantastic visit to the control tower, which was made all the better due to the time, patience and enthusiasm that you showed to the children during our visit. It was truly invaluable. The children have really enjoyed learning about both world wars, and have shown so much interest, understanding and compassion, which was mainly due to the invaluable experience that they gained from you all at Carew Cheriton.Deputy Headteacher (Ysgol Glan Cleddau)
This must be one of the smallest museums I have ever visited but also one that I will never forget. Why the reason is very simple, everyone who is involved in the running and maintenance of this facility can speak in the first person, they know what happened, they know who lived and died here and to sit and listen...TripAdvisor
“History at its best! ”Absolute brilliance from the volunteers who run the tower! Very informative and so easy to listen to! Much is to come from such a little known part of history! This needs to be a huge part of British heritage! Needs to be recognised by all. Tripadvisor
