South West Wales Museums
Following a grant from CyMAL in 2010, SWM was formed in order to create a working partnership between four museums, to include:-
- Carmarthenshire County Museum, Abergwili
- Ceredigion Museum in Aberystwyth
- Scolton Manor in Haverfordwest
- Swansea Museum
The aim of SWM is to market the four museums’ excellent educational opportunities and extensive loan material for schools, in order to help with delivery of the National Curriculum.
Medwyn’s Museums Website provides a ‘one stop shop’ where safety information, booking forms, teacher’s notes and borrowing outreach collections can be accessed easily from one place in order to facilitate visits to SWM museums.
The SWM project has been developed with input from both schools and museum staff alike, with teachers taking a constructive role in the development of the website and museum visits that will ultimately be of benefit to all involved.
