The main gallery showcases artists' interpretations of landscape, taken from Amgueddfa Cymru-National Museum Wales' collection of art and antiquities. The gallery is open from 10am-4pm every day. Admission is free and the building is fully accessible.
Oriel y Parc is a unique collaboration between Amgueddfa Cymru-National Museum Wales and Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority, in which services for visitors are joined by displays from the national collections to celebrate the landscape.
Using objects from the art, natural history and industry collections of Amgueddfa Cymru-National Museum Wales, visitors are able to view a regularly changing exhibition programme.
Wriggle: The Wonderful World of Worms!
Open 10am-4pm every day until 28 June 2020
A new exhibition at Oriel y Parc Gallery and Visitor Centre will offer you the chance to uncover worms of all shapes and sizes, from the everyday earthworm to the extraordinary bone eating snot flower.
Wriggle: The Wonderful World of Worms, which will be on display at Oriel y Parc until 28 June 2020, will offer the chance to discover the mind-blowing diversity of worms from the collections of Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales.
Supported by players of the People’s Postcode Lottery, the exhibition invites visitors to walk inside the amazing ‘Wriggloo’ and see life from a worm’s point of view. Wriggle down and explore an earthworm’s habitat and see what animals live alongside them.
As well as offering a chance to unearth information about worms from all over the world, the display will also include species from closer to home such as the tentacled lagoon worm. They have only been recorded in two places in Wales, both of which are in Pembrokeshire.
Wriggle: The Wonderful World of Worms will be on display at Oriel y Parc from 25 January until 28 June 2020. The gallery is open every day from 10am-4pm. Entry is free, thanks to the support of the Welsh Government.
