Stepping Out at Amgueddfa Cymru

Do you count your daily steps?

Or would you like to know how many steps you do on a visit to our Museums?

We all know that exercise, fresh air and discovering new things are good for our physical and mental well-being.

Amgueddfa Cymru’s Steps campaign helps you to explore as many different routes and areas of the museums as you like, count your steps, discover new things and take in some culture and history along the way!

You might want to explore the outdoors at the National Wool Museum, National Slate Museum and St Fagans, or delve deep underground at Big Pit, or wander the galleries and exhibitions at the National Waterfront Museum, National Roman Legion Museum and National Museum Cardiff.

With suggested routes and steps counted, what’s stopping you?
