The main collection

Ceredigion Museum has a collection of about 60,000 items from the county of Ceredigion. The majority of specimens are objects that were made or used in the county between about 1850 and 1950.

The Museum collections

The majority of specimens are donations. About 2% of the collection is on loan; about 22% of the collection has been purchased.

Historical documents are gradually being transferred to the County Archive Office.

Ceredigion County Council is most grateful to all those who have given items to the collection.
