Ceredigion Museum is based at the Coliseum, one of the finest and most unusual buildings in Aberystwyth. The museum is a vibrant, welcoming institution. The considered permanent displays attempt to deepen the understanding of the history and culture of the county to the community of Ceredigion and its visitors.
Built as a theatre in 1904-5 by David Phillips, it was the venue for at least 5,000 events including Eisteddfodau and political meetings. It became a cinema in the early 1930s and was run by Harry Gale and his wife Olive. He choose the motto ‘Amusement without vulgarity’ for the cinema which ran until 1977. The Ceredigion Museum took over the building in 1982.
