About Us

Today, probably more than ever before, the School of Art Museum collections are making an invaluable contribution to the teaching and research activities of the University. The Museum offers primary research material for public reference and its Gallery stages a regular programme of public exhibitions. The School of Art Gallery and Museum and the Ceramics Gallery, as we are renamed, are both MLA Accredited Museums. Each has greatly benefited from the financial support of CyMAL, MLA/V&A Purchase Grant Fund, The National Fund, Arts Council of Wales and both the Arts Council and Heritage Lottery Awarding Bodies which provided for a new Prints and Drawings Study Room, with proper facilities for storage and reference 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 Gallery is just a few minutes walk away from Aberystwyth town centre and railway station. Click on the link below for a map.
