It is the only representation of industrial heritage and the only one from Wales–or indeed anywhere outside of London and South East England.

The award is for the “UK’s most inspiring museum or heritage visitor attraction of the past year.”
Copper Kingdom, situated in Amlwch’s old copper bins in the harbour, is a refreshing example of a new heritage attraction that has bags of substance as well as style. It takes its history seriously and presents it wonderfully. If you have not yet visited, I could not recommend it more. I was one of the nominators for Copper Kingdom and this was my nomination pitch:
“Copper Kingdom is the most original, informative and immersive new heritage centre in Wales. A beautiful example of industrial regeneration, the old copper bins now house an inspirational story of how a tiny village port was for a while in the 18th century the centre of the world’s copper industry.”
