Cynon Valley Museum Postpones Reopening

The Cynon Valley Museum has made the difficult decision to postpone its reopening to help ensure the safety of the public, volunteers and staff. We have made this decision based on recent increase in the rate of people contracting Covid-19 in Rhondda Cynon Taf and the surrounding area.

The museum will be ready to reopen when it is safe to do so as infection rates drop. We have been working towards creating a safe environment for visitors with a complete clean of the public areas, automatic soap dispensers and Perspex screens. We will be introducing one-way systems and track and trace procedures to ensure the safety of all.

The museum will continue to prepare to reopen and ensure the appropriate measures are in place so that you and our community can enjoy a safe visit exploring the history and culture of the Cynon Valley.


Always Open Online

….in the meantime, we are always open online, explore 12 digital exhibitions including exhibitions on some of the Cynon Valley’s favourite places Aberdare Park and Dare Valley Country Park and 3 exhibitions exploring the Jewish Heritage of the Cynon Valley. There is still much more available online with Stories from the Collection exploring our valleys history and why not have a go at museum jigsaws created from the museums collection.

You can support the museum today by making a donation online or by becoming a friend of the museum. At this time the support of our community has been vital to ensuring our long term sustainability, by making one donation or by becoming a Friend of the Museum you will help keep the museum open for you and future generations from the Cynon Valley.
