National Museum Cardiff is a museum and art gallery in Cardiff, Wales. It was founded in 1905, but owing to the First World War it did not open to the public until 1922, with the official opening taking place in 1927. 

The museum has collections of botany, fine and applied art, geology, and zoology. Archaeology has been moved to the St Fagans National Museum of History.

The Clore Discovery Centre offers hands-on exploration of the museum’s 7.5 million items that are normally in storage, including insects, fossils, and Bronze Age weapons. 

National Museum of Art

The National Museum of Art opened in 2011 with a collection of Old Master paintings and landscape paintings in the classical tradition which includes works by Claude, Gaspard Dughet, Salvator Rosa, and two works by Nicolas Poussin.

There is a gallery devoted to British 18th-century art and a collection of French art.

The art gallery also has works by all of the notable Welsh artists and a collection of 20th-century art.
