Cardiff Museum

Cardiff Museum is an amazing place. It has one of the finest art collections in Europe, and the largest collection of Impressionist paintings out of Paris -  a real treasure trove.

The Davis sisters who were avid collectors of Impressionist paintings and who had a real penchant for Rodin, bequeathed their collection to the Museum and what a delight it was to see it all.

  1. What fun! Photography has really changed the way we appreciate art - now you don't have to go to museums, but can enjoy a masterpiece in your own home or office: it is a great thing.
