“In line with the latest UK Government guidance, the Robert Owen Memorial Museum will be closed from Monday 23 March until further notice. Thank you for bearing with us at this difficult time.”
New Bedroom Browser is packed with information for tourists to Mid Wales.
Robert Owen Museum is included so that all tourists staying in the local area can see details about the museum and plan their visit.
This is a great way to advertise this museum and, hopefully, increase the number of visitors to the museum in 2019 and also in 2020 too.
The Robert Owen Museum is open all week, Monday to Friday from 11am to 3pm.
Come in to see the interesting and historic display about the famous son of Newtown, who became one of the most significant social reformers and thinkers of his time.
The museum is free, but donations towards the cost of upkeep of the museum would be gratefully received, as the museum is run as a charity by a team of volunteer staff.
You will meet one of the staff from the Town Council and they will be able to explain what you can see at the museum. There is a shop where you will be able to purchase a gift. Bi-lingual leaflets are available. The staff member will also be able to guide you towards other attractions to see in Newtown, e.g. the Textile Museum and you are welcome to take a leaflet from the tourist information display.
There is also a short audio-visual presentation explaining about the life and work of Robert Owen from the perspective of historians, local Newtownians and politicians who have worked in Newtown. We hope you enjoy your visit and tell others about the museum.
