The Welsh radio museum

Yr Amgueddfa

Gwefr Heb Wifrau - Wireless in Wales, a charitable trust, is a small radio museum with a difference.  With its emphasis on the history of broadcasting in Wales, the influence of broadcasting on our national identity and the contribution of the Welsh to the development of wireless technology it is unique.  We have an interesting collection of old radio equipment and books, as well as educational and informative displays.  The Museum is based around the collection of the late David Evan Jones and was opened just a few weeks after his death in 2008.

 

We were officially re-accredited by the Museums, Archives and Libraries Division of the Welsh Government in May 2018.

 

The museum is open on Mondays, 11.00 - 15.00, with the exception of bank holidays. Group and private visits are welcome at any other time, by appointment, throughout the year.

 

 

Wireless in Wales provides a safe and secure environment for volunteers and visitors, including wheelchair access throughout the building, a hearing loop and exhibits for safe handling. Our staff are trained and experienced in looking after visitors with disabilities. 

 

 

 

Events

The museum organises regular monthly talks in English or Bilingual.  We also organise several talks in Welsh annually. The talks are usually on a Friday and start at 7pm. Upcoming Events are listed below with the talks emphasized.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

HLF Project

The 2 year project to develop our learning provision came to an end in April 2013.  It was funded by the Heritage Lotetry Fund and enabled us to have 3 part time members of staff to develop learning resources, improve learning displays, organise events, visits to the museum etc.  Further details available by clicking on Projects in the main menu above or by clicking here.Lottery Logo
