Borth Station Museum is a hidden gem in the village of Borth, 7 miles from Aberystwyth. The Museum recreates the world of a GWR holiday railway station from 1922 from the heydays of the railways and those happy holidays by the sea.

The collection of artifacts includes hundreds of items collected by volunteers over the years as well as donated items from supporters' own collections.

The Station Manager's Office is where you'll usually find Siencyn (welsh for Jenkins), a local cat who has given his own seal of approval to the station museum. This is also where you'll find the Borth Station Volunteer team who are ready to answer any questions you might have, or give you an impromptu tour of the facility. Souvenirs of Borth museum are available here, all proceed of which go towards upkeep and maintenance of the museum.

The old ticket office has been completely renovated, keeping as many original features as possible. The ticket hatch, original desk and fireplace has been retained, and has been restored to how it would have looked during the 1950s, with many of the artifacts found in the abandoned cupboards having been cleaned of many years' of dust and replaced in their rightful places.

The old waiting room is where you'll find interactive displays, including a model railway, a cabinet full of old railway related items, and a specially produced video about the local area and the station itself. For further information visit: http://www.borthstationmuseum.co.uk
