The Sir Henry Jones Museum is situated in the middle of the village of Llangernyw on the A548 between Abergele and Llanrwst. It is advised to arrive via car or bus as it is around a 15 minute drive from Llanrwst and 20 minutes from Abergele on roads without pedestrian pavements. There is a bus (Service No. 43) that travels from Belgrano to Llangernyw, twice a day, everyday except Sunday. The bus stop is less than a 100m from the museum.
There are plenty of places to park near the museum. The main car park is on the other side of the road, a few metres down the road outside the local school; but in addition to that, there is an ideal parking spot for half a dozen cars literally opposite the museum building. Opposite that, about a 100m down the road, there is a 3rd parking area, usually for the Tafarn y Bont pub, but it can be used it the others are full. All parking spaces are free but unfortunately there are no designated disabled bays, though no parking spot is ever too far from the museum.
The museum has one main entrance, facing the A548. To get to the entrance, there is a need to walk up a straight stone path, which can get slippery when wet. There is an admission fee, but there is a discount available for children and families. Credit and debit cards are not accepted. There isn’t a cafe but museum staff will happily direct visitors to nearby pubs and restaurants. The stairs to the first floor are steep and narrow, and therefore could prove difficult for some to ascend.
