Amgueddfa Cymru - National Museum Wales is a Welsh Government Sponsored Body (WGSB), and CyMAL: Museums Archives and Libraries Wales is responsible for policy and operational work relating to the museum.
Amgueddfa Cymru - National Museum Wales was founded by Royal Charter in 1907 and has 7 sites:

We introduced free entry to national museums in April 2001 and remains an important Welsh Government policy. The removal of charges has had a huge impact on visitor numbers. In 2013-14 over 1.6 million visitors enjoyed free entry to the seven AC-NMW sites, more than double the number in 2000-01.
To find out more about the Museum please visit the Amgueddfa Cymru - National Museum Wales website.
Every year, we issue a Remit Letter to AC-NMW. The letter sets out the Museum's role in relation to our strategic agenda. This includes details of the priorities and outputs expected as well as how much funding will be provided. The remit letter can be accessed via the menu bar on the left hand side of this page.
