Rhayader Museum and Gallery

Date joined: 08/07/14


Rhayader Museum and Gallery looks small and compact from the outside but, once inside, you will find a downstairs temporary Exhibition Gallery where there are a variety of exhibitions throughout the year. The building is fully accessible with a lift to the upper floor.

Rhayader museum cares for the heritage of Rhayader, Pant y Dwr, St. Harmon, Abbey Cwm Hir, Bwlch y Sarnau, Llanwrthwl, the Elan Valley, the Claerwen Valley, Nantmel, Gwystre, Gaufron and Nantglas. 

Upstairs in the Museum Gallery there are films to watch, and more than 50 oral histories to listen to along with a vast array of objects to look at. All of which help to tell the story of Rhayader from the early ages of man though to the current generation of people who live in and around the town.

Rhayader Museum and Gallery is run by CARAD, an independent charity. Currently, we charge an entry fee because we like to be able to use the money we raise to develop new exhibitions and projects.
