About Greenfield Valley

Welcome to North Wales best representation of the Industrial Revolution. We have brought the past back to the future and present the old world for you to experience. We are the most comprehensive museum devoted to the Industrial Revolution in North Wales. We tell stories of factory work men, women and children who gave their lives to make way for our modern way of life.

The Museum depicts powerful history through the ages about the local farming and milling communities dating as far back as Victorian and Tudor times. We focus on cotton, copper and brass trading industries and what it was like to work in these poor conditions.

The Park is not just a museum but an events stage too as weekly we have Children's activities to attend, mainly through the school holidays and always at weekends. You can find out below 'what’s on' by scrolling down the page.

The park is a great place for children to spend the whole day. They are guaranteed to have a blast, with so many things to do and see such as the Toddler Tractor Heaven, the Indoor Soft Play Area, our Mega Tower Maze, the big Adventure Tree House, swings, the Water Power and not forgetting our newest attraction the Tunnel Maze, we do hope you can join us soon.

“Brilliant day out with grandchildren" My grandchildren aged 4 & 7 loved this place as there was plenty to do. There favourite things were the maze, treehouse play area, the museums and seeing the animals. The staff are all very friendly, knowledgable and helpful. My husband and I are looking forward to visiting without the grandkids as there seems to be some very nice walks which we didn't manage to do as we couldn't get away from the play areas!!!!
