About Y Lanfa Powysland Museum and Welshpool Library


Welshpool Library is located on the ground floor with entrance to the museum via the stairs.


The Museum is divided into two galleries, Social History and Archaeology, depicting the local history of Welshpool and Montgomeryshire.
The first gallery shows how life in Montgomeryshire has changed and developed, looking at areas such as agriculture, the railway and the canal. Exhibitions include displays on the Montgomeryshire Yeomanry, Welshpool during World War Two and Laura Ashley in Wales.
The Archaeology gallery takes the visitor on a chronological tour of Montgomeryshire, showcasing fossils, evidence of Neolithic farmers, through the Bronze and Iron ages, the coming of the Romans and local roman hoards to the early Medieval period and rise of Christianity. The archaeological finds include both those made by the members of the Powysland Club and those which have come from more recent scientific excavations carried out by the Clwyd -Powys Archaeological Trust.
