Carmarthenshire County Museum, Carmarthen

Set in parkland in the glorious Towy Valley, this was for centuries the palace of the Bishop of St Davids. The building became a rare example of Welsh Arts & Crafts architecture when a devastating fire presented an opportunity to rebuild the palace in 1904. The museum displays fascinating and curious art and antiquities from Carmarthenshire’s past. It’s the perfect place to soak up the history from a part of Wales steeped in heritage, myth and legend. Discover the bones of ice age animals, fossils, Roman gold, the legend of Merlin’s Oak, gravestones from the time of King Arthur and folk art believed to have mystical powers. Enjoy displays of past lives, such as Elsa’s traditional Welsh cottage, the old palace kitchen, rural food production and the exquisite and beautifully preserved palace chapel.
