About this location

Discover art, archaeology, natural history and geology. With a busy programme of exhibitions and events, we have Show more… something to amaze everyone, whatever your interest - and admission is free!

Although not the oldest of Amgueddfa Cymru - National Museum Wales's buildings, this is the first location of National Museum 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.

Discover the secrets of our ancestors from the Neanderthals a quarter of a million years ago in the Archaeology gallery, Origins: in search of early Wales. Everyday objects and beautiful artefacts tell the stories of people in Wales and explore our links with the past.

The Art collection at National Museum Cardiff is one of Europe's finest. See five hundred years of magnificent paintings, drawings, sculpture, silver and ceramics from Wales and across the world, including one of Europe's best collections of Impressionist works.

Take an amazing journey in Evolution of Wales from the very beginning of time to the present day. The story begins in space with the Big Bang and takes you on a 4,600 million-year journey, bringing you face to face with dinosaurs and woolly mammoths. Find out how life evolved in Wales and which dinosaurs roamed the land.

Witness the diverse Natural History of Wales on an expedition which begins at the seashore and ends in the mountains. Experience some of the unique environments that make Wales home to over 900 Sites of Special Scientific Interest.
