National Museum and Gallery

Cathays Park Cardiff CF10 3NP

The rather fine National Museum and Gallery has something for everyone. The country’s natural history is comprehensively documented in the stirring Evolution of Wales Gallery, while the Origins exhibition next door is keeper of Wales’ most prized archeological treasures, such as the Red Lady of Paviland Cave, a 26,000-year-old skeleton discovered on the Gower Peninsula in 1823. Art lovers, meanwhile, should make a beeline for the upper floors, where works by Welsh luminaries such as William Parry and Richard Wilson are displayed alongside some of the titans of European painting, including Picasso, Renoir and Cezanne. Back downstairs, let the kids loose in the Clore Discovery Centre while you unwind in the agreeable museum cafe.
