Conwy Mussel Museum
Conwy was once one of the most important pearl fisheries in the country. Conwy would harvest 4 kilograms of pearls per week in the 19th century and musseling in Conwy is still carried out the old fashioned way but on a smaller scale today.
Located on Conwy's beautiful quayside, the museum provides history of Conwy mussels and their uses and even tells you how the 'Conwy Pearl' was discovered and used to decorate a crown for a royal. You can also view state-of-the-art purification tanks and learn how mussels are harvested today.
A delicious treat to aphrodisiac there's something here for everyone!
