Domestic and Costume collections

Needlework, quilts, Welsh costumes.

"These collections include a comprehensive range of interior fixtures and furniture, ranging in date from the 16th century to the present day.

Clothing from all of the above periods is also collected, both fashionable and everyday wear, official uniforms and occupational dress. Also included are accessories of all types and items of personal use. A study collection has also been compiled for use by students and specialised school groups.

There are comprehensive collections of cooking, dairying equipment, household appliances, tableware, ornaments and furnishing fabrics.

The horological and country furniture collections are particularly strong, with a large proportion displayed in the re-erected buildings.

There are large collections of female dress of the 19th and 20th centuries, richly displayed in the costume gallery."
