Carmarthenshire Museum

Our county museum is an ancient building which sits in parkland in the glorious Tywi valley.

Eleven galleries take you through 50,000 years of history. 

The building was the palace of the Bishops of St. Davids (1542-1974) and where the New Testament was first translated into Welsh.
