Plan Your Visit

During this unprecedented period we are open three days per week – every Thursday Friday and Saturday – until further notice.

We're good to go logo

The Museum remains free to enter. However, to keep you and our staff safe, we have had to reduce the number of people we can welcome on site at any one time. To manage this, all visitors entering the site will need to have booked a free ticket in advance. Sadly, if you don't book and present a valid ticket, you’ll be turned away. We can make no exceptions.

Please do not try to book or visit us if you are from a COVID-19 lockdown area or have any symptoms of COVID-19. Tickets can only be reserved by people resident in Wales. Groups are limited to four people over the age of 10, unless they live in the same household.

Your safety, and that of our staff, is our priority. To reduce any risks from COVID-19, we have had to change what we do, and your visit will be different from what you are used to. We will be operating a one way system around our galleries.

While Melin Teifi will be weaving, the viewing gallery looking down onto their looms will be closed and their shop will be available by appointment only. The museum shop and toilets will be open and our café is now open serving a limited selection of hot and cold drinks, cakes and tasty savories.

Throught December, your ticket includes a National Wool Museum Christmas Craft Trail. Throughout the festive season you'll also find some festive craft decorations made by the Museum Volunteers in our galleries

Only the main entrance, opposite Melin Teifi, by the water wheel, will be open. The rear entrance (across the bridge from the field car park), will be used as an exit only for the time being. Keep an eye out for signs directing you towards the entrance.

Visitors are required to wear face coverings at our Museums, in line with Welsh Government guidelines. We reserve the right to refuse entry to those not wearing a face covering without due cause for example for health and wellbeing reasons.

Book your free ticket in advance

We are a charity and every penny we raise supports our work with communities across Wales. Please donate if you can.
