July at the Museums

Come in your thousands to one of Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales's sites in the Cardiff area this July.

National Museum Cardiff and St Fagans: National History Museum have something for everyone. From archaeology to science, our activities are bursting with information and lots of fun too.

Ancient Ancestors is the main theme at National Museum Cardiff, to compliment the exhibition Death in Wales 4000-3000 BC currently on show.

There's a series of displays at our Glanely Discovery Gallery exploring how prehistoric people remembered their ancestors, and the skeleton stories will also lead the themes in our Do Something Different Sessions. Find out what scientists can tell us about bones that have been laid in the ground for hundreds of years.

To top it all, Faces of Wales, an exhibition of portraits of people who have contributed to the cultural, political and economic face of Wales over the past 500 years is still on show until 24 September.  

Come to St Fagans: National History Museum and find out what you should be doing in the orchard at this time of year, or join us on a walk around the gardens looking at how plants get their names.
