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.

Laura Ashley Peacock

Laura Ashley: The Ultimate Cottage Industry, 'London, Paris, Llanidloes'

  • 30 October 2017 — 6 January 2018 *on now

Delve into the life and work of welsh designer Laura Ashley, whose dreamy fashion typified the back to nature movement of the 1970s. The world became hooked on the label's romantic silhouettes, nostalgic frills and floral prints. But there is so much more to her work. This exhibition illustrates the full range of her craft, dating from the 1950s through to the 1980s.
