In the Gwynedd Museum and Art Gallery, there are unique artifacts, art and a lively space for families and children; in the Lloyd George Museum you can learn about the man who became prime minister, and you can travel back to the Victorian era by visiting the cottage where he was raised; in the in the Quaker Centre you will learn the story of the Quaker community who lived in the Merioneth area.
The Lifelong Learning Service is responsible for libraries in all parts of the county, and there are reference sections in the larger branches where much historical information is to be had in printed sources. Often, however, the required information is not to be found in books, but then it is possible to turn to original source material in the Department's record offices - in Caernarfon and Dolgellau. There you can view documents, photographs, maps and local newspapers relating to the county's history over four centuries - and our staff are at hand to help you find the facts you are looking for.
