National Museum Phase 1


The National Museum Cardiff is one of Wales’ finest neo-classical buildings situated in the heart of Cardiff’s elegant civic centre, and is listed Grade I. The building was officially opened in 1927, and was substantially remodelled over subsequent years.


Many components of the early building works were reaching the end of their useful lives, and consequently a major remodelling and refurbishment of the existing roof areas was necessary. The opportunity was also taken to refurbish and redecorate the interior of the upper East wing galleries to provide suitable accommodation for one of Europe’s finest art collections. The walls were hung with decorative fabric to provide a complementary backdrop to the exhibits.
