Cynon Valley Museum & Gallery
Cynon Valley Museum & Gallery

Since opening in Aberdare in 2001 the Museum has been telling the story of the Cynon Valley and its people. The Valley has changed greatly: from sparsely populated farmland in the early nineteenth century to the towns rapidly expanding, with workers flooding in to meet the demand for coal created by the Industrial Revolution, to today’s post-industrial landscape. As an Accredited Museum, we collect and preserve a wide range of objects that tell the stories of the area and how life has changed for the generations who have lived here.
