Treftadaeth Menai Heritage
Menai Heritage is an exhibition based around the history of the two famous bridges over the Menai Strait - Thomas Telford's Menai Suspension Bridge and Robert Stephenson's Britannia Bridge. We have artefacts dating from the construction of Telford's bridge (1819-1826) and its later alterations, and also from Britannia Bridge (1846 -1850) and its reconstruction after the 1970 fire. The history of the area is closely linked to the bridges and is included in the displays together with the Liverpool and north Wales pleasure steamers and HMS Conway. The geological and ecological significance of the Menai Strait is also covered.Visitors can watch DVDs about the bridges and take a guided walk along thewaterfront.The children's corner (admitted free) will interest a range of ages.Open Sunday to Thursday at Easter, spring bank holiday and through summer, or arrange a group visit orworkshop.
