Improving the Museum

3 August 2020

Last year we embarked on a Visitor Improvement and Energy Efficiencies project. As soon as we closed for the season, out went the exhibits and in came the contractors. Developments include:

  • A new carpark surface
  • A carpark bumper
  • Interior and exterior walls cleaned and painted
  • New LED lights inside to replace the old halogen lights
  • New curtains at the front entrance
  • New material in the integral cabinets
  • New Alternative Crown Jewels cabinet
  • A solar panel battery (to store energy from our solar panels);
  • Air-to-air heat pumps
  • A freshly sanded floor
  • Neon lights have been maintained
  • Deep clean for exhibits

The difference is astonishing! The new lights and the fresh walls give the Museum a new lease of life, Andrew’s work sparkles in all the right place.  We can’t wait to see you in the Museum so that you can enjoy it for yourself.

This project was made possible by funds from Welsh Government, The John Young Charitable Foundation, Powys County Council, The Federation of Museums and Art Galleries of Wales and The Foyle Foundation.  Without their support, we simply would not have been able to bring the Museum up to date with visitor expectations and install measures that will keep the Museum efficient for years to come.

The energy saving measures will also care for the collection and visitors by keeping a stable temperature year round, and will enable us to extend our opening hours as we make savings on our energy bills . 

We are incredibly grateful to the following funders, without whom, this project would not have been possible:

and The John Young Charitable Settlement
