Where is it?
You can find the home of Menai Heritage and The Menai Bridges Museum, the Thomas Telford Centre, on Mona Road, Menai Bridge, not far from the Anglesey end of the suspension bridge – on your right, just a couple of hundred metres from the roundabout and opposite Waitrose car park. There is minimal parking, but a pay and display (Coed Cyrnol Car Park) can be found a little further along Mona Road on the left (just after Jade Village). The museum is also not too far from Telford’s bridge – meaning you can take a short walk there afterward to get a better feeling for everything you’ve learned.
Wednesday and Thursday
The museum is open every Wednesday and Thursday from Easter through October between 10:00am and 5:00pm.
Closed until Spring 2023
The museum is currently closed for the winter, but will reopen in the Spring of 2023.
