Places to visit in Llŷn
Visit the museum without walls. The ecomuseum (Ecoamgueddfa) located in Llŷn is the first ecomuseum to be developed in Wales. It operates in partnership with seven of the Llŷn Peninsula’s heritage organisations with the aim of increasing cultural tourism bringing economic and social benefits to the area.
What is an ecomuseum?
An ecomuseum is a museum focused on the identity of a place, largely based on local participation with the aim of growing the economy whilst enhancing the welfare and development of local communities. It refers in particular to a new idea of holistic interpretation of natural and cultural heritage as opposed to the traditional focus on specific items and objects by conventional museums.
