The Robert Owen Museum in Newtown houses a collection of objects, pictures and written material relating to the life of Robert Owen. The Museum is in the centre of Newtown just a few feet from where Owen was born. It tells the story of Robert Owen (1771 - 1858) who inspired the Co-operative movement.
