Welcome to MonLife Heritage

In light of the latest Welsh Government Covid Rules our museums will close from Friday 4th December. We already had a planned period of closure during the winter months to enable us to work on our collections.

We look forward to welcoming you back from February half term onwards. Details of how this opening will look will be posted here and on our social media pages once we know what is possible to meet the guidance applicable at the time.

As you may be aware our countryside and attraction car parks and outdoor sites and Leisure Centres are now open, however other facilities are still closed, so please see the individual venue and service pages on our website for detailed information.

MonLife staff have worked tirelessly in the background preparing your facilities to make sure that you feel safe and comfortable. Why not check out our MonLife YouTube channel where you will be able to view some of the measures that we have put in place. #MaketheComeback
