The Garrison Chapel is a chapel to the Royal Dockyard at Pembroke Dock in Pembrokeshire, Wales. It was designed by George Ledwell Taylor, Surveyor of Buildings to the Navy Board, in the early 1830s and was completed in 1834–35. Originally, £7,944 was allotted in the 1829–30 Naval Estimates, but this was reduced to £4,000 by the Controller of the Navy Board. A year after it was completed, another £3,500 was provided to build galleries to accommodate the increased numbers attending and to create an additional entrance.
From 1974 until 1986 it was used by the Pembrokeshire Motor Museum, but was then sold to a developer and fell into disrepair. It was compulsorily purchased by the county council in 2003.

Informative small musuem with a lot of information on flying boats based in Pembroke Dock and ships built in the dock. Staff are passionate and know their subject. We left ourselves an hour to visit but could have spent longer. Small cafe.

Very good. Cheap entry. I got a book for £2 from the second hand bit which was good. They have a workshop in the middle where they restore pieces of the Sunderland they have raised from the sea. The staff are friendly and helpful also knowledgeable. 4* because it was a little repetitive and not much variety.

Very friendly and informative. All staff were volunteers and were keen informed enthusiasts. Made to feel very welcome.

It was the flying boat museum that was my destination - one of the most extraordinary place - steeped in history - should not be missed lest we forget the sacrifices that were made by previous generations
