Mae’r arddangosfa gymunedol newydd wedi cyrraedd! Byddwn yn arddangos uchafbwyntiau ein casgliad hanes lleol gyda’i gilydd am y tro cyntaf. Bydd cyfle i weld dillad galar o oes Fictoria, teganau a wnaed gan Garcharorion Rhyfel o’r Almaen, y gist bleidleisio rheithgor hynaf yn Ewrop, a llawer mwy. Y peth mwyaf hynod yn yr arddangosfa yw tarian yr Ymerawdwr o Ethiopia, enillon ni ddwy wobr genedlaethol am ddiogelu hon yn 2017.
You are here
Free days out
As we all know, the best things in life are free. Which is handy if you’re on a budget. It costs nothing to climb a mountain, hug a tree or walk along a riverbank. All of which we have in abundance in Mid Wales. Just pick your spot. There are 2,000 square miles of free entertainment out there.
You can watch the birds or follow the sculpture trail at Lake Vyrnwy, join Little Red Riding Hood on the Rock Park Fairy Tale Trail in Llandrindod Wells, or stroll the pleasure gardens of soprano Adelina Patti at Craig-y-Nos Country Park. You can see world-class contemporary art at Oriel Davies in Newtown or the Museum of Modern Art Wales at Machynlleth and walk a wooden causeway to a thatched roundhouse raised on stilts above Llangorse Lake at the Welsh Crannog Centre. And from the terrace of the Brecon Beacons National Park Visitor Centre at Libanus, you will get an unforgettable view of Pen-y-Fan – the highest peak in southern Britain.
None of these things will cost you a penny -as long as you bring a packed lunch and a flask, that is. Otherwise you may have to make an allowance for all the homemade cakes and freshly-ground coffee you’ll encounter on your travels.
The new community exhibition has arrived! Bringing together on show for the first time, some of the real highlights of the local history collection, including Victorian mourning clothes, toys made by German POWs, the oldest Jury ballot box in Europe and much more. Star of the show is an Ethiopian Emperor's shield, which earned two national awards for its conservation in 2015.
Meeting Father Christmas is one of the experiences that makes the festive period so magical. Bring along your family and add a bit of sparkle to your Yuletide.

11am to 1pm or 2pm to 3.30pm at Powis Castle
