The Conwy Valley Railway Museum is located at Betws-y-Coed railway station, North Wales, on the site of the old railway goods yard.

The museum was founded in the early 1970s by Alan Pratt, starting with a former standard gauge railway carriage which today acts as a licensed Buffet & Restaurant car. The current museum was built later, and contains various railway artefacts, including a 15" gauge quarter scale replica of a Britannia class locomotive. Other attractions include a 7" gauge miniature steam railway which runs for a mile on the site.

There is also a one-third full-size electric tramcar which runs for half a mile on the site. This is the only electric railway of any gauge in Wales.
