Welcome

Welcome to the Clore Discovery Centre. For those of you who maybe haven’t ventured through our huge double doors we’re a ‘hands on’ gallery on the ground floor of the National Museum Cardiff.

 Come to us to explore hundreds of Museum objects: insects, fossils, minerals and gemstones, animal skulls, Roman pottery and Bronze Age weapons (to name but a few!) It’s your chance to get to grips with a few of the 7.5 million objects normally buried away in our stores.

 These real objects can inspire adults and children alike. Over time we’ll be posting some examples of your responses to the collections and giving you some ideas to help you get the most from the gallery and its collections.

 Why not bring your ‘mystery objects’ to the gallery and our experts will help you identify them. We’ll be putting our favourites on the blog and asking you to join in with your ideas.

 

See you soon!
