Cyfarthfa Castle Museum & Art Gallery

The ‘Ironmaster’ William Crawshay commissioned Cyfarthfa Castle in 1824. This grand castellated mansion overlooked his immensely successful ironworks and has been called ‘the most impressive monument of the Industrial Iron Age in South Wales’.


Today, the museum houses extensive fine and decorative art collections and atmospheric social and industrial history galleries. All set in beautiful parkland on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park.
