The Cardiff Story Museum will celebrate its second birthday on April 1 with a weekend of events over the Easter break.
The museum has welcomed hundreds of thousands of visitors from Cardiff, Wales and further afield since it opened on April 1 2011.
The attraction, which tells the story of how Cardiff has evolved, involves residents and community groups in its exhibitions, and recently launched monthly “reminiscence” events to hear more about people’s memories of the city.
Birthday events running from this weekend will include:
- Detective Dewi’s Easter Trail, running until Sunday April 7.
- Daily story time with the Enormous Crocodile, running tomorrow, and from Tuesday April 2 to Friday April 5 at 11am each day.
- A family fun day on Wednesday April 3 between 11am and 2pm, where activities will include making a Roald Dahl Roly-Poly bird.
- Birthday craft activities and free balloons from Saturday March 30 to Monday April 1.
Cardiff council’s cabinet member for sport, culture and leisure, Councillor Huw Thomas, said: “The Cardiff Story is very much about the people and the stories they have about this great city and I think that is what has made the museum such a success over the last two years.
“There has been so much input from so many people and I would like to thank everyone who has got involved by donating their stories, memorabilia or time.”
