If you're visiting Cardiff for the day, come to Cardiff Castle and learn about how the fortunes of the wealthy shaped the city, from the Romans all the way to the Bute family. Afterwards, why not head to the Museum of Cardiff to find out how the people of the city lived.

The Museum of Cardiff's collection is an important part of the city's heritage and helps to tell the city’s story, from the earliest times, through the industrial coal boom, to the present day. Most of the objects, ephemera and photographs on display have personal stories attached to them, so it is the people who have shaped the city that tell its story.

The Museum of Cardiff is housed in the Grade II* listed Old Library building, one of Cardiff’s most iconic buildings, and is only a short walk from the Castle. Open daily from 10:00 - 16:00 and admission is FREE.
