Carmarthenshire County Museum
Carmarthenshire County Museum

Carmarthenshire County Museum has on display a fine collection of paintings that are distributed throughout its galleries. The museum tells the fascinating story of Carmarthenshire. The museum is housed in a former Bishop’s Palace at Abergwili, near Carmarthen, and stands in its own grounds near the historic Merlin’s Hill. The museum was begun in 1908 and opened to the public in its present home in 1978. Among the museum’s most popular works of art are a portrait of Royalist general Sir Richard Vaughan attributed to William Dobson, ‘Welsh Landscape’ by Edward Morland Lewis and an eighteenth-century portrait of Brigid Vaughan, Madam Bevan by John Lewis.
