We are an independent charity promoting participation in arts and heritage activity!

The Clock is Ticking on TimeScape Rhayader!
The builders have nearly finished, which means we can get in there and do the filling, sanding, painting, cleaning and weeding…and then install our awesome new displays!
We need your help. Come down and make your own mark on our new attraction and be a part of Rhayader’s history. Any time you can spare would be much appreciated. Just send us a message on FB or drop in to CARAD anytime during the week.
Training, biscuits and laughter supplied!

What's On - Local Natural History Talks

What's On - Nature Talk & Draw

A talk from a local natural history expert, followed by a supported drawing session to connect to their collection – bringing the natural world and drawing practice together to facilitate nature connectedness and creativity in an accessible way.

Our theatre space is still fully operational. However, our museum is currently undergoing redevelopment. 

We look forward to welcoming you back to our new visitor attraction, TimeScape Rhayader, which will be opening in the Spring of 2023.

We will be showing more of our collections, developing new interactive displays to let the objects tell the story of our community. We will explore how our landscape has been shaped and how our past and present choices can build a positive future.

We have also created an outside exhibition space,  so you will still be able to enjoy your local heritage before our grand re-opening. Come on by to learn about the incredible secrets hidden within Rhayader’s surrounding countryside!

TimeScape Rhayader

CARAD are redeveloping and extending Rhayader Museum into and exciting new visitor attraction – TimeScape Rhayader!


We want to build on our earlier and ongoing community consultations which have given us a wealth of new subject areas and interesting ideas to look at in more depth. As with our past successful community projects, we want to bring a group of interested people together to work with a professional designer to bring those ideas to life. We will learn from each other and create an amazing new space.


If you are interested in research, designing spaces or displays or would just like to get involved and see where you fit in, please get in touch. This is a positive, forward looking opportunity to have a long-term impact on our local community, schools, and visitors alike.


We are very mindful of Covid security and will be arranging covid safe meetings, in line with guidelines.


Please contact us as soon as you can.
