Here Be Dragons!

(For All Ages)

There’s a baby dragon roaming around Cynon Valley Museum!

Can YOU help us find it?

To do this, you’ll need to find out about dragons and how important they are here in Wales, and if you do manage to find it, then there’s a little prize and we can release the baby dragon back into the wild so it can grow to a big red dragon, like that on our flag.
