Wales was the first industrial nation of the world.
With a rich cultural heritage, you can still see much of its history today. This is reflected in its collections as they present and interpret how people lived and worked, from the Middle Ages to the present day. From caves to mining pits and from links with Stonehenge to medieval Britain, Welsh history is curated by many national museums including the National Museum Cardiff, the National Wool and the National Roman Legion.
Smaller and less busy sites include the Castle and Town Walls of King Edward I in Gwynedd, Thomas Telfords masterful engineering at Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Canal and the Ceredigion Museum.
