The Cardiff Story in Cardiff (Glamorgan, Wales)

In our fun, free and interactive galleries, discover how Cardiff was transformed from the small market town of the 1300s, to one of the world’s biggest ports in the 1900s, to the cool, cosmopolitan capital we know today. The museum, in the beautiful and historic Old Library building, is rich in stories, objects, photographs and film telling the history of Cardiff through the eyes of those who created the city – its people.

City Lab – Interactive Learning Gallery

In City Lab, our interactive learning gallery, there are areas for adults, children and families to explore and investigate the city’s past and present through hands-on activities, displays and our research library.

Younger children have their very own area where they can piece together clues about Cardiff’s history, recreating characters from the past through play, dressing up and handling old objects.
