Llandudno Museum exists to preserve the Chardon bequest, to collect objects on the history of Llandudno and surrounding area and effectively manage the resources so that people working there are able to protect, develop and share the collections for the benefit and enjoyment of a wide range of visitors now and into the future.
Llandudno Museum was established in 1927 following the bequest of F.E.Chardon to the town of his magnificent collection of paintings and objets d'art from around the world. Llandudno Museum is proud to present its new exhibition, Ice Age Llandudno, which tells the story of Llandudno at the end of the last Ice Age around 13,000 years ago.
The exhibition includes the display of the oldest known work of art from Wales, a decorated fragment of a horse’s chin, which is on loan from the British Museum. This internationally significant object was recovered from Kendrick’s Cave in the 19th Century, and has returned home temporarily for the enjoyment of visitors to Llandudno.
