National Museum of WalesThe National Museum of Wales is the home for Wales’ national art, archaeology, natural history and geology collections and was officially opened in 1927. It has a busy programme of touring exhibitions and events and provides something to excite everyone, whatever their interest. What’s more, admission is free.

You can discover the secrets of our ancestors from the Neanderthals a quarter of a million years ago and find out how Wales evolved and which dinosaurs roamed the country. You can also view one of Europe’s finest art collections (five hundred years of paintings, drawings, sculpture, silver and ceramics, including one of Europe's best collections of Impressionist works). There are plenty of opportunities for ‘hands-on’ experiences by exploring objects from the museum’s rich collection of over 7.5 million artefacts.

The museum is located in Cathays Park and is open 10am–5pm Tuesday–Sunday (Galleries close at 4.45pm).
