National Museum Cardiff, St Fagan’s National Museum of History, National Waterfront Museum, Big Pit National Coal Museum, National Slate Museum, National Roman Legion Museum and National Wool Museum - seven museums in one place.

National Museum Wales is a family of museum and special interest venues from across Wales providing meeting and event planners a quick reference and easy access portal to a very special range of meeting and event spaces and places.

Some of the most iconic buildings and backdrops for your meeting or event, these venues have authentic wow factor.

These museums and venues are all, by definition, iconic. Meeting and event planners can choose a venue that works for them based on all standard planning criteria but more often these venues are chosen because of their own or shared history and for their setting.

Helping to deliver sustainable events by supporting the restoration and upkeep of museum buildings.

By choosing National Museum Wales venues for your meeting or event, you are making a direct donation to the upkeep of these special spaces and places. Profits from all meetings and events go back directly to the venues and to their own restoration and improvement projects.

Sought after locations for film and fashion shoots.

Often used in conjunction with neighbouring hotel properties, these venues are in high demand for product launches and celebratory events. Meeting and event attendees can have rare access to spaces and places that are otherwise closed to the general public and this has real appeal to special interest groups.

In-house event teams and volunteer staff are often used to help with curating behind-the-scenes tours and storytelling.

From small and intimate spaces for 10 people up to larger indoor and outdoor spaces for 500, these venues appeal to meeting and event planners who are willing to add some creative flair to make their event come to life.

Choose St Fagan’s if you are looking for a meeting and event space with a distinct difference. A working museum and home to 40 buildings from all over Wales moved stone-by-stone to their current location, chronicling Wales through the ages. You can even hire the 1920s dance hall.

The National Slate Museum has workshops and buildings designed as though quarrymen have just put down their tools and left for home.
