The making of Welsh broadcasting

Come and explore 100 years of the history of the BBC in Wales with us. From its birth in the 1920s into a new digital age, discover how Wales has, and will continue, to contribute to the making of the BBC.

Experience a walk through time to discover more about the history of the BBC in Wales and how 100 years of broadcasting has evolved, as well as an opportunity to see the technology, programmes and costumes of the past through objects and archive footage.

BBC 100 in Wales is the only exhibition to mark the centenary of BBC broadcasting in Wales and we invite visitors of all ages to engage and to tell their own stories. The BBC has been there to inform, educate and entertain – but what does the BBC mean to you?

The exhibition has been co-developed with a group of young people to question the representation of communities on the BBC and how the future may evolve. We want to hear from you, too - join the conversation. Tell us about your BBC memories and viewpoints on your visit to the exhibition.

Book your free ticket

Your free exhibition tickets are available to pre-book, with daily walk-up visits also available for those who arrive at the Museum without advance bookings. Save time on arrival by pre-booking your ticket here.
