The Judge's Lodging Museum Presteigne
#1 of 2 Museums in Presteigne
Great that you are free to touch and sit on everything on show too, which makes a nice change to most museums.
If visiting South Wales, I would highly recommend the Judge's Lodging as a truly unique and hidden museum in the small but attractive town of Presteigne.
The Spaceguard Centre & Observatory Knighton

Much of the subject matter was completely new to us despite endless Science Museum etc trips.
Erwood Station Gallery Builth Wells

The Old Bell Museum Montgomery
#1 of 3 Museums in Montgomery
Well put together and some of the big museums could learn a thing or two about how to engage the visitor.
The Old Bell Museum is a must visit and an Aladdin's cave of interesting exhibits which have been laid out in such an organised and thoughtful way that each room is dedicated to certain aspects of the town's history.

Radnorshire Museum Llandrindod Wells

We always try to visit local history museums, and have seen a fair few.
I frequently visit the exhibitions at the Radnorshire Museum, as a local (Radnorshire) it is free to go in and they often have additional exhibitions of art / crafts from the local area.

Robert Owen Museum Newtown
#4 of 4 Museums in Newtown
He or she could give lessons to the curators of some major UK museums.
Robert Owen is a hero of 19th century social progress, and the town's museum does him full justice.
Knighton Museum Knighton

We were interested in seeing the displays the museum has from the perspective of jogging memories for people with dementia, but this museum really is a little gem and would appeal to everyone.

Land of the Lost Content Museum Craven Arms, UK 40.9 km away
#1 of 1 Museums in Craven Arms
I have visited a fair few museums of various themes and collections but I have to say, this was by far the most detailed, impressive, interesting and genuinely relatable.
... you're embarking on your own private adventure through the last 120ish years, completely engaged in finding the treasures yourself, rather than things being laid out for you in the way a regular museum may do.

The Regimental Museum of The Royal Welsh (Brecon) Brecon 42.1 km away
#1 of 2 Museums in Brecon
This is a real gem worth every penny, and an example of how to bring history to life that so many other museums should take note of.
Many smaller regimental museums go one of the two ways and lose something as a result.
