The Lace Guild Museum

The Lace Guild’s collection contains over 16,000 objects, including lace of all kinds, together with equipment and ephemera. It is cared for by the Honorary Curator, Gwynedd Roberts, and a team of volunteers. The collection became a Registered Museum in 2001, and in 2009 it achieved Accredited Museum status, recognition by The Arts Council that it adheres to nationally agreed standards for museums in the UK.

         The museum contains an Exhibition Room, where displays of lace from the collection are held from time to time, interspersed with displays of lace from other sources. The rest of the collection (the Reserve Collection) is stored in drawers, boxes and cupboards, and can only be viewed by appointment. 

          You are very welcome to visit the museum to look at and study the lace and other artefacts — you do not have to be a Lace Guild member.
