Christmas & New Year Closure Period
The Museum will be closed from 13.00hrs on Thursday 22nd December 2016 until 10.00hrs on Tuesday 3rd January 2017
The General Office a Grade 2 Listed Building is occupied by the Ebbw Vale Works Museum, the Gwent Archives and Blaenau Gwent Borough Council Management Team.
Visitors to the Ebbw Vale Works Museum will find a eclectic collection of artefacts and archived material covering the evolution and development of coal, iron and steelmaking in the area from 1790 to the works closure in 2002 and its subsequent demolition.
The Museum also provides access to a considerable amount of material relating to the social aspect of the lives of the community.
The committee of the Museum wish to thank Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council, Tata Steel, Welsh Assembly-CyMAL-Federation of Museums and Art Galleries Wales, the Association of Independent Museums and all visitors to the museum, past, present and future for their continued support.
The Museum is an independent operated facility which relies on support/funding/donations from visitors and those bodies mentioned above, ensuring the collection is maintained for posterity and the education of the public for generations to come.
To help generate funds the museum has introduced a "The Friends of the Museum-Newsletter" published internally and available for a nominal sum. All contributions go towards the maintenance and upkeep of the facility during these difficult financial times, thereby keeping the museum open to the general public.
Membership of the "Friends of the Museum" can be accessed by "Clicking" on the icon *Friends of the Museum on the top right hand side page and follow the instructions to print off a application form. The completed form should be forwarded to our treasurer Mr Les Pinney with the enclosed cheque.
Entrance to the Museum is FREE
