Volunteers bring new insights and understanding. And if you'd like to join us, volunteers will be a huge part of CofGâr's future. We're confident that we can offer you a rewarding experience. And we will want to learn from you, too. Together we can explore and add to the Carmarthenshire story.
That's the bit we're excited about. But just at this moment we can't sign up anyone new. Our museums, old and new, need a range of development work to be finished, before we can provide the right place to welcome you.
But if you are curious, keep an eye on our social media channels for news. And this page will have a signup form for you to submit your details. After such a long and difficult time, we are looking forward to meeting you.
Be a Friend
Communities of people created our museums. Carmarthenshire Antiquarian Society began Carmarthenshire Museum in 1908. The public's lobbying led to the gift of Parc Howard to Llanelli in 1912. The vision and commitment of many volunteers saved Kidwelly’s tinplate works in the 1970s. And strong local opinion pushed for a museum to celebrate Pendine’s unique history in 1996.
Our Friends groups continue this long tradition. The Friends of Carmarthenshire Museum launched in 1989 and the Friends of Llanelli Museum in 1995. Both groups organise an annual programme of social events, talks and visits. Their fundraising has help us buy many significant items for the collection. Friends also receive invitations to museum openings and private views.
