This museum is in the Coliseum, which opened in 1905 as a theatre, then served as a cinema promising 'amusement without vulgarity', from 1932 onwards. The elegant interior retains its stage, around which are arranged entertaining exhibitions on Aberystwyth's history – every­thing from old chemist furnishings and hand-knitted woollen knickers to a mini puppet theatre and recreation of an 1850s cottage.

The museum is due for a major redevelopment in 2017, when it will expand; the tourist office below will also receive an upgrade.
