Cae Dai 50s Era Museum

Attraction in Denbighshire

Cae Dai 50s Era Museum

The Cae Dai Trust is based in the countryside just 1 mile outside the market town of Denbigh. After the closure of North West Wales largest psychiatric hospital in 1994, the Cae Dai Trust was established to provide support for vulnerable adults.

Cae Dai is able to give limited temporary accommodation; which provides the“umbrella” of support required to enable the beneficiary's time to gain confidence, self esteem and life skills essential to moving on and living independently in the community. The main source for this support is in the 1950's museum, a fantastic resource and attraction for the local and wider community.

The museum has a collection of classic cars, sport,music,film and crime memorabilia.

Our beneficiaries also enjoy looking after the animals on our farm and a spot of gardening in the woodland and community orchard. Please visit Cae Dai and help us to continue.

Author's Review

The 50's museum here in Denbigh is one of those little hidden gems youhear talked about a fair bit in this book! Having seen fire's destroy one of the main buildings last year due to an arson attack, like a Phoenix from the Ashes Cae Dai 50's museum is hoped to be back to its full glory again from April 2012. Then you will be able to enjoy looking around such vehicles as the original lorry that was used in the real ‘Great Train Robbery' also featured at the museum is the car that belonged to ‘Christine Keeler' the 50's & 60's model that sparked the whole ‘Profumo' scandal that rocked the then conservative government. Plus many more treasures from the 50's era. So whether you're a 50's enthusiast or just somebody who appreciates the past, do not overlook this amazing little museum.
