Although the National Museum Cardiff has been open since 1927, its National Museum of Art is a recent addition, opening in 2011. Despite its new position, it houses some of the world's most renowned artists, from the Masters, such as Rembrandt, to Impressionists, like Claude Monet, to contemporary artists, including Pablo Picasso.
Of course, the Welsh museum is also home to works by Wales' best artists throughout the generations, including spectacular paintings and sculptures.
The building itself is much more than an art museum. Inside, visitors may explore archaeology, geology, botany and zoology, as well. The Clore Discovery Centre, also opened in 2011, provides hands-on exploration of items often in storage at the museum. In total, the museum's exhaustive collection encompasses 7.5 million items.
