Since June 2017 Llanidloes Museum and library have been co-locating.
The museum displays reflect the collections as well as the major events and development of Llanidloes during the last three centuries. In the foyer is a display dedicated to the Chartist movement and the "riots" of 1839, further on amongst the bookcases are displays on civic history, local trade and tourism as well as the mining and woollen industries.
Household items are shown in two themed cases representing late Victorian rooms. The "parlour" has period furniture such as a settle, chairs and a cradle whilst the kitchen and laundry setting has a fireplace with a crane, fire irons and a kettle tilter with kettle. Placed on shelves are sugar cutters, wooden plates and bowls, a tea caddy, jelly moulds as well as butter prints and many other utensils. Finally, the Victorian gentleman’s study shows off the museum’s fine collection of natural history cases and sets them in a historical context.
