Ceredigion Museum is housed in a restored Edwardian Theatre. It has been described as 'one of the most beautiful museum interiors in Britain'.
Ceredigion Museum is a vibrant, welcoming institution which through well thought out displays and exhibitions attempts to deepen the understanding of the history and culture of the county to the people of Ceredigion and its visitors.
We make accessible our collections and information about them, which we hold in trust for the community we serve.
This is achieved by collecting, documenting, preserving and interpreting material evidence of Ceredigion's past for the public benefit.
