About Us

The School of Art Museum and Galleries make an invaluable contribution to the teaching and research activities of the University. The collections offer primary research material for student, staff and public reference and the Galleries run a regular programme of public exhibitions. The School of Art Museum and Galleries, (which includes the Ceramic Gallery in the Arts Centre on the main campus) is an Accredited Museum. The collections have benefited greatly from the financial support of MALD (Museum, Archives and Libraries Division, Wales), the V&A Purchase Grant Fund, purchase grants from the Art Fund, the support of the Arts Council of Wales and both the Arts Council and Heritage Lottery Fund who have provided for proper storage and maintenance of the collections in safe and environmentally controlled conditions.

Housed in a magnificent Edwardian Grade II* listed building in its own grounds on the Buarth hill, overlooking Cardigan Bay, the School of Art Museum and Galleries are just a few minutes’ walk away from Aberystwyth town centre and the railway station. Click on the link below for a map.
