Y Gaer is an exciting and inspirational new cultural centre in Brecon, which brings together the refurbished Brecknock Museum & Art Gallery with a brand new Brecon Library to create meeting and event spaces to stimulate the senses – space for poetry, music, reading, art and learning, with peaceful corners for study and contemplation.

The Museum & Art Gallery in the Grade II* listed former Shire Hall, has seen the restoration of the Assize Court, the opening of the subterranean cells and the provision of redesigned galleries, which contain the nationally-important museum collections and works of art and also offer space for special displays and exhibitions.

The Brycheiniog Gallery on the top floor features on the different parts of Breconshire and their special features.

Y Gaer Library has a fabulous range of books for all ages, plus Wi-Fi and computer facilities,
