Carmarthenshire 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 ‘Welsh Landscape’ by Edward Morland Lewis and an eighteenth-century portrait of Brigid Vaughan, Madam Bevan, by John Lewis.
Please note that some of our paintings, such as those featuring in the BBC programme 'Britain's Lost Masterpieces', are not currently on display. We are developing exciting new galleries to display more of our paintings that we hope will be ready over the next 12 months.
