The Power of People


The Cynon Valley Museum has seen what the power of the people can do. Whilst we were challenged with the museum being permanently closed during 2014-2015, our community showed up for us and saved our historic building as well as the important collections reflecting the Valleys’ past.

By becoming a Friend of Cynon Valley Museum, you will help ensure that we continue to stay open, allowing access not only to our unrivalled collections but also preserve the museum as a space for community groups and events.

Help us on our mission to preserve the history, creativity and enjoyment of our community, for as long as possible.
