About Us

What do we do?

People's Collection Wales is a free website dedicated to bringing together Wales's heritage. The Collection is full of fascinating photographs, documents, audio and video recordings and stories that link to the history, culture and people of Wales. These items have been contributed to our website not only by national institutions but also individuals, local community groups and small museums, archives and libraries across Wales.

We also offer training to local community groups and organisations. Our training day delivers a step by step guide on how to digitise content and breaks down tricky topics such as copyright. With our free equipment loan, there will be nothing stopping you.

Are you a teacher? Head over to our Learn section where you'll find a variety of teaching resources by key stage and topic. We're also partnered with Hwb allowing teachers and pupils access to our vast archive of thousands of resources via the classroom. Through their Hwb account, teachers and learners can search and add materials to their Hwb resources, playlists and classes.

Why do we do it?

We're passionate about celebrating Wales' culture and heritage and believe everyone has a piece of the jigsaw that tells the story of Wales, be it a memory, a letter, an old photograph or recording. We want to capture and share these often untold stories on our website for future generations to enjoy.

Who are we?

Established in 2010, we're a small team working on People's Collection Wales. We are Welsh Government funded, and the three leading partners organisations are Amgueddfa Cymru - National Museum Wales, National Library of Wales and the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales.
