We welcome school visits, Carmarthenshire Museum contains something to excite everyone such as a reconstruction of a 19th Century farmhouse and Victorian schoolroom. Schools can also use Carmarthenshire County Museum's park in order to allow children to have hands-on experience of the wonderful biodiversity of the area.
Did you know that Carmarthenshire County Museum has three more sites? These are Parc Howard Museum & Art Gallery, Kidwelly Industrial Museum and the Museum of Speed at Pendine.
Borrow a discovery box!
If you are a Carmarthenshire school you can borrow one of our boxes, these contain several items which children may handle (unless otherwise stated). Their contents are restricted to items which are duplicates of items in the museums collection, safe to handle and small enough to keep in the pack. Teachers may photocopy any notes and illustrations in the pack.
