About Museum of Cardiff

The perfect place to start your visit to Cardiff!

The Museum of Cardiff is the first museum where Cardiffians and visitors alike can see the story of the city through the eyes of its people.

The museum is housed in the beautiful and historic Old Library building in the heart of the city centre.

The museum tells the tale of how Cardiff was transformed from the small market town of the 1300s, to one of the world's biggest ports in the 1900s, to the cool, cosmopolitan capital we know today.
The Museum of Cardiff is a fun, free, family day out and a fantastic learning and community resource. It is a great starting point for any visit to Cardiff, providing an introduction to the city’s history and pointing visitors to places where they can find out more.

In addition the museum runs a diverse programme of events, activities and exhibitions.
