About Y Gaer

Y Gaer is a new cultural hub for Brecon . It is an attraction for locals and visitors to the town, who want to find out more about the rich heritage of the town itself  and its surrounding areas. The new  building  blends with the original classical Shire Hall, and  contains  the refurbished Brecknock Museum & Art Gallery and its unique Victorian court room,  a brand  new library, and    education and community rooms; there is also a café. 

There are peaceful corners for study and reflection  both in the new atrium and outdoors in the  landscaped Captain’s Walk Gardens, from which you can glimpse the hills beyond.  y Gaer has something to attract people  of all ages and interests and is a great starting point for visitors wanting an appreciation of  how the past has shaped the present in our beautiful town . Permanent and temporary exhibitions boast  an extensive range of artefacts, paintings, furniture and digital interpretation displays to delight all.
