Pop Up Museum

Pop up museum Victoria Gardens Neath

Presented by Mike Davies

 Visitors and school children have been learning about life at Neath Abbey ruins, and the history of the town, at the pop up museum at Victoria Gardens Neath.

Local historian and author Robert King, was to hand to  answer questions relating to the town’s history, which included a walk to Neath castle.

There were numerous displays, which included Roman artefacts which were found in and around Neath including a model of Neath castle.

The event was interesting for all ages to learn about the past history of Neath.

Neath should have a dedicated museum for both young and old to enjoy, I believe that  Neath is the only town without a museum,  such a shame, as Neath has  a lot of history to share.
