Planning Your Visit

All activities are free.

Please book all visits in advance, including self-directed activities.

The museum is in the village of Abergwili, approximately 1½ miles east of Carmarthen, on the A40 (towards Llandeilo).

Some of the spaces within the museum are small, so school groups often have to break up into smaller groups in order to rotate activities. In these circumstances, the museum offers a member of staff to lead one group only.

The museum is fully accessible and has a lift to the first floor. The museum has toilets, including a dedicated disabled toilet.

School visitors are welcome to use the Bishop’s Chapel to eat packed lunches. This is a private chapel that was used by the Bishop and his staff. It is used to start off and to finish schools sessions. It can seat up to 60 children.
