If the weather is bad or you just fancy learning a bit more about the history of Wales, pop in to one of these museums.

 

The National Waterfront Museum in Swansea is the top spot in the country for those interested in Wales’ proud industrial and maritime heritage, while the National Slate Museum in Gwynedd focuses on the rock used to roof buildings all around the world.

 

Learn about the men and women who worked in this tough industry at the South Wales Miners Museum in Port Talbot, which focuses on the way of life of miners. If you are in Kidwelly, pop into the Kidwelly Industrial Museum to look at the old tinplate works, coal mine and other local industries.

 

More diverse exhibits are on show at the National Museum Cardiff, where art, natural history and geology artifacts jostle for space. When the weather is good, the open-air St Fagans National History Museum is a delight to wander around, too.

 

Discover the history of the Welsh wool industry at the National Wool Museum in Lllandysul, or look back on 100 years of exhibits at the West Wales Museum of Childhood for a dose of nostalgia.
