National Museum Cardiff

School Trips

Home / Wales / Glamorgan

Although not the oldest of Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales's buildings, this is the first location of the National Museum of Wales, officially opened in 1927.

Situated in the heart of Cardiff's elegant civic centre, today it houses Wales's national archaeology, art, geology and natural history collections as well as major touring and temporary exhibitions.

Visit the National Museum & Gallery and be amazed by collections from Wales and beyond. Look and respond to paintings and sculptures or discover all about the world of animals and plants. Head back in time to when the Celts lived or travel even further into the past to when the dinosaurs ruled the earth.
