Cyfarthfa Castle Museum & Art Gallery is one of the great “finds” of the South Wales Valleys. Situated in the restored Regency rooms of Cyfarthfa Castle, the museum’s impressive collection of artefacts represents Merthyr Tydfil’s rich history; from the earliest Bronze Age inhabitants to the men, women and children of the industrial era. The castle is set in 160 acres of parkland containing formal gardens, sweeping lawns, a lake, children's play facilities, a model railway and much more. The castle and park are situated on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park and make a great day out.
If you would like more information about the artefacts in our collection, or would like to view an artefact that is not on public display, please contact us.
