National Museum Cardiff (Welsh: Amgueddfa Genedlaethol Caerdydd) is a museum and art gallery in Cardiff, Wales. The museum is part of the wider network of Amgueddfa Cymru â€“ National Museum Wales (formerly the National Museums and Galleries of Wales).
The museum was founded in 1907, when it inherited the collection of the Cardiff Museum, which shared the building of Cardiff Central Library. Construction of a new building began in 1912, but owing to the First World War it did not open to the public until 1927. The architects were Arnold Dunbar Smith and Cecil Brewer, although the building as it now stands is a heavily truncated version of their design.
Situated in the heart of Cardiffâ€™s elegant civic centre, today the museum houses Walesâ€™s national archaeology, art, geology and natural history collections as well as major touring and temporary exhibitions.
The collection includes works by Poussin, Botticelli, Reynolds, Daumier, Millet, Van Gogh, Monet, CĂ©zanne, Renoir, Rodin and many others.
