Cynon Valley Museum Winter Covid Closure

Due to recent changes in Covid-19 guidance from the Welsh Government, Cynon Valley Museum Trust are sad to announce that we are required to close from 4pm on Friday 4th of December.  Unfortunately, we are currently unable to provide a re-opening date until it is deemed appropriate by the relevant bodies.

During the past two weeks of re-opening we have been overjoyed to see our community return to the museum and assist in its recovery.  This is a testament to the overwhelming support our community has given to the museum throughout 2020 and despite this latest setback, we will continue to support our community throughout this difficult time.


We Are Always Open Online


If you have not already done so, please explore our website and social media pages to find out about the range of digital exhibitions and articles exploring the history of the Cynon Valley.

Join us throughout December as we delve into the history of the Nos Galan races in Mountain Ash, display the work of the artist Barbara Castle and share in the events of other groups within the community. Don’t forget – it’s your museum!  Therefore, we’d love to hear your related stories, memories and feedback for all our online content!


How to Support Cynon Valley Museum


As we close, we will again be losing our main source of income generation for the museum. At this difficult time, you can support the museum and help ensure our long-term sustainability by becoming a Friend of the Museum or by choosing to make a one-off or monthly donation. Your support today will help ensure our museum continues to play a vital and much-loved role in the telling of the Cynon Valley story.


See You Soon!


Finally, everyone involved with Cynon Valley Museum Trust takes this opportunity to extend our thanks to everybody that has supported us this year.  We look forward to opening our doors again soon but in the meantime, we will be busy working to deliver our digital content and preparing a brand-new programme of exhibitions and events for 2021.

To stay in touch, please sign up to our monthly newsletter for the latest information and news from the Museum. Click here to sign up!


We wish you all a heartfelt “Merry Christmas” and encourage you all to stay safe and well, and get ready to make 2021 a fantastic year for the Cynon Valley!
