Mostyn Gallery

You may not expect to find Wales' leading contemporary museum in the beautiful seaside town of Llandudno, nor may you expect to find the stunning new architecture that lay behind the gallery's impressive 1901 terracotta façade.

Mostyn is a striking gallery set in a striking landscape, where old and new buildings have been merged into one harmonious design by architect Dominic Williams.

Permanent collections

Although Mostyn does not have a permanent collection, the venue's five galleries aim to showcase the best contemporary art produced in Wales and in turn bring to Wales some of the most exciting international art. Exhibitions change every couple of months and vary from large-scale shows to small projects and video projections. A notable feature is regular exhibitions by artists from Africa and Latin America.

Visitor information

Café Lux ramps up the offering with a sea-view and light installation by Gavin Fraser of the noted lighting architects foto-ma. The licensed café offers dishes based on locally-sourced produce including home-made cakes.

No modern gallery would be complete without a shop, and Mostyn displays contemporary craft from around the UK, as well as books and cards. Don't forget to explore the superb seaside town of Landudno and the famous Great Orme Tramway which takes you to the top of the Great Orme and dates right back to 1902.
