Ebbw Vale Works Museum is home to a fantastic collection of artefacts and archives spanning the history of coal, iron and steelmaking community of Ebbw Vale and the surrounding area from 1790 to closure of the works in 2002 and its subsequent demolition and its free to visit.
The General Office accommodation space is shared between ourselves, the Gwent Archives and the Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council management team.
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 museum which relies on support/funding/donations from those bodies mentioned above to remain open and maintain and provide the local and further afield communities with a museum/collection that will advance the education of the public for generations to come.
Eighteen months ago the museum set up a scheme called "The Friends of the Museum" to help to raise funds to maintain and keep the museum open for the general public through these difficult financial times.
If you wish to become a member of the "Friends of the Museum", and support the maintaining of the museum, please click on the page titled "Friends of the Museum", on the top right hand side page and follow the instructions to print off a application form. Once filled in please send it to our treasurer Mr Les Pinney with your cheque enclosed.
From Monday 6th July 2015 to Monday 20th July 2015 (inclusive) there will be necessary remedial work carried out in parts of the Ebbw Vale Works Museum due to inherent damp problems on some of the external walls.
During the remedial work the museum will remain open, although it it will effect what areas visitors and volunteers can have access to.
From Monday 6th July 2015 until Wednesday 15th July 2015 the display cases in Room G3 will be moved into the North End Corridor against the West Wall and will remain there until Thursday 16th July 2015 when they will be returned to their original locations in Room G3.
On Thursday 16th July 2015 until Monday 20th July 2015 (inclusive) work will take place on Room G5 the ex General Managers Office. For these three days Room G5 will be closed to visitors and volunteers.
We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, but please do not be put off from visiting the museum
