Rhayader Museum and Gallery looks small and compact from the outside but, once inside, you will find a downstairs temporary Exhibition Gallery where there are a variety of exhibitions throughout the year. The building is fully accessible with a lift to the upper floor.
Upstairs in the Museum Gallery there are films to watch, and more than 50 oral histories to listen to along with a vast array of objects to look at. All of which help to tell the story of Rhayader from the early ages of man though to the current generation of people who live in and around the town.
Rhayader Museum and Gallery is run by CARAD, an independent charity. Currently, we charge an entry fee because we like to be able to use the money we raise to develop new exhibitions and projects.

We are so fortunate in Wales to live in a compact, beautiful country that’s packed to the rafters with with an incredible variety of stunning scenery and wonderful wildlife. Situated at the very heart of Wales, on the banks of the river Wye, our small town of Rhayader is a truly special place. This film gives insight into the natural world around us and was produced in partnership with local naturalist group, Rhayader by Nature.
Your support actively helps people to engage in arts and heritage through live events, exhibitions, workshops and innovative projects.
Members will receive free entry, 10% discount on CARAD events, workshops, and in our gift shop.
