Wales' National Museum of Art

For the first time, from old masters to contemporary installations, Wales' national art collection is being showcased under one roof. But rather than being housed in a brand new building, it will instead occupy part of the existing National Museum in Cardiff.

For Radio 4's Today programme, BBC arts correspondent Rebecca Jones travelled to Cardiff to take a guided tour, and meet the former Labour Culture Minister Kim Howells, who thinks Welsh art deserves more.
