The Kidwelly Industrial Museum focuses on the Tinplate industry in Kidwelly. In addition there are exhibits featuring coal mining and brick making. The museum is located near the town of Kidwelly, Carmarthenshire, south Wales, on the site of the former Kidwelly tinplate works. The tinplate works was originally established in 1737 and was closed in 1941.

Rescued by the Kidwelly Heritage Centre and Tinplate Museum Trust in 1982, the old works now interprets not only the tinplate industry, but also coal mining and brick manufacture in the area. On display are the machinery and tools used in these former key industries of Carmarthenshire.
