Amgueddfa Cymru - National Museum Wales is the nation’s national museum, with seven museums.

National Museum Cardiff

The Evolution of Wales exhibits take visitors from the Big Bang to the present day, with dinosaurs and woolly mammoths along the way. Upstairs, one of Europe’s finest art collections is especially strong on Impressionists and Post-Impressionists.

National Wool Museum

Set in the old Cambrian Mills in the Teifi valley, this museum demonstrates the fascinating process of Welsh wool from fleece to fabric

Big Pit National Coal Museum

A tribute to the coal industry and the society it created, set in a unique industrial landscape that is designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The highlight is the underground tour exploring the workings of this former coal mine.

St Fagans National Museum of History

An immersive exploration of Welsh life through the ages, with more than 40 original historic buildings reassembled in the outdoor park, including farms, shops, a terrace of miners’ cottages, a workingmen’s institute, pub, woollen mill, bakehouse and 12th century church. The indoor galleries recently had a £30 million makeover, along with a new Gweithdy (workshop) for craft displays and activities.

National Roman Legion Museum

Sits on the site of one of only three permanent fortresses the Romans built in Britain, with impressive remains that include the UK’s most complete amphitheatre, baths and the only surviving Legionary barracks on view anywhere in Europe.

National Waterfront Museum

The centrepiece of the city’s Maritime Quarter, this hi-tech museum celebrates the mining, metal-working and transport technologies that changed the face of Wales, without forgetting the very human stories behind all that dazzling innovation.

National Slate Museum

Located in the heart of a North Wales slate industry that once employed 17,000 workers, Dinorwig Quarry, and largely staffed by ex-quarrymen, it tells the story of how slate changed the landscape and people.

Amguedda Cymru - National Museum Wales is committed to enabling public participation in culture, and supporting cultural rights, social justice, and equalities.
