Museums promote the cultural life of Wales, by protecting our heritage, providing education, and contributing to our tourism industry.
They are places for inspiration, learning and enjoyment for all. We work closely with the museum sector, supporting them in their efforts to develop services and collections. You can find more information on how we support museums here.
