Ceredigion Museum

ceredigion museum logoCeredigion 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.

The museum has a lively programme of temporary exhibitions in the Coliseum auditorium and the gallery. We apologise if these are being changed during your visit.

The Gallery may sometimes be closed at short notice: if you are travelling specifically to see an exhibition, please phone in advance.

Ceredigion museum has a large collection of fabrics including quilts, blankets, rag rugs and costumes, including Welsh costume. Most were made or used in Ceredigion and date between 1880 and 1970 but a few are earlier. Only a few examples are on permanent display, but examples from the stores may be seen by appointment.

The Museum is run by Ceredigion County Council.

Distance from The Jen Jones Welsh Quilt Centre: Aberystwyth is 27 miles / 50 minutes.

Location: The museum is next to the Aberystwyth Tourist Information Office in Terrace Road: 100 metres from the sea front.
