A Museum and Workshop of Coracles from around the world set in the grounds of a 17th Century Flour Mill beside the beautiful Cenarth falls famed for its Salmon Leaps and 200 year old Bridge over the Teifi River.
The Museum, apart from its fine collection of coracles covers the history of coracles and the techniques and tools for building them. Also a section on the implements and methods used for the equally ancient art of poaching.

The National Coracle Museum houses an international collection of coracles from as far afield as Vietnam, North America, India, Tibet and Iraq to complement the collection of coracles from around our home islands.

The museum also incorporates a work-shop to show the ancient craft of coracle making. Young children can also sit in a coracle and watch a video of how they are made.
For organised parties a guided tour of both the museum and the 17th Century Flour Mill is available.
From the Mill viewing areas and pathways provide wonderful views of the Salmon Leap and the 200 year old bridge.
