CORWEN Museum will re-open this week, with new displays set to celebrate the history of the Town and its surrounding areas.

Following a winter break, where volunteers have worked hard to set up upcoming exhibits, the museum will re-open its doors on Friday (March 1).

Displays are set to showcase the Edeyrnion villages, Corwen as an Eisteddfod town and Corwen Pavilion, which had entertained the nation for a century, before being demolished in 2015.

The Museum's upstairs exhibition area has also been extended to cover Corwen as a Transport Hub.

Staff say they will also have a replica Anderson Shelter, post war news of 1919 and World War Two news from 1939.

Jim Ritchie, chairman of Edeyrnion Heritage and Cultural Society which runs the Museum, feels that the area's memories should be cherished.

"We have already invited people to send us postcards, describing their own or relatives’ special memories about past events at the Pavilion," he said.

"These will form part of a ‘living’ Pavilion display during 2019. Corwen Museum had another record year in 2018, with increased numbers of visitors from the local district and much further afield.

"We hope you will come in to share your own memories of the Pavilion and to see all of our new displays."

The Museum will be open every day except Tuesday and Thursday, from 11am to 4pm.
