The County Museum presents many aspects of Carmarthenshire's rich and varied past. Displays include local geology, archaeology, Welsh furniture, ceramics, portraits, landscape paintings, costume, a Victorian schoolroom, life on the farm and the Homefront in World War 2.

The building was once the palace of the Bishops of St. David's (1542-1974) and it was here that the New Testament was first translated into Welsh in 1567. Visitors can still see the tranquil, private chapel used by the bishops.

The museum is set in a historic arboretum and garden, ideal for a picnic and with views across the Tywi valley.
