The main gallery showcases artists' interpretations of landscape, taken from Amgueddfa Cymru-National Museum Wales' collection of art and antiquities. The gallery will reopen in January 2021. 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!
The gallery will reopen in January 2021
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 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 is open every day from 10am-3pm. Entry is free, thanks to the support of the Welsh Government.
In order to keep our staff, visitors and community safe, we have made some small changes to our Main Gallery.
All visitors must sanitise their hands on entry and exit to the gallery and it is also mandatory to wear a face covering in all of our indoor public spaces. Visitor numbers are limited to ensure social distancing measures can be adhered to.
