Wonderful exhibit of modern art

Tucked away behind Plas Mawr, this free art museum gives a wonderful sample of fine art by Welsh artists. If you want some special souvenirs, visit their small gift shop.

This is one of those places that unless you happen to walk around the side streets of Conwy you will undoubtedly miss it. A small yet well accomplished gallery well worth a visit and just enjoy the art, sculptures and photography of the 120 + members of every description in pleasant surroundings. The staff are more than helpful and it... More

First of all it is FREE! I have visited many times because the exhibitions vary every few months. The paintings are very varied, usually expensive but all for sale. If I had the money I would be very happy to have some of the works on my wall.

The Royal Cambrian is a show case for local artists. Spread over 2 floors and 2 stair cases the variety of subjects andq abilities are very interesting. Many of the displayed works are for sale and the display changes on a fairly regular basis so repeat visits are rewarding.

I visited the Royal Cambrian Academy of Art on 19 March. I have visited several times and on some times the gallery has been closed in the winter months. The gallery is well worth a visit. Always showing a good exhibition. Staff are always pleasant.

We stopped in during a walk through the town and found large displays by a couple of local artists. We got a chance to talk with one of them while we browsed the paintings. There are multiple floors of display space. It is quite worth the visit for art lovers. No charge to enter.
