There's more to MOSTYN than its reputation as the foremost contemporary gallery and visual arts centre in Wales. Behind an impressive Edwardian terracotta facade, and topped with a landmark gold spire, in the traditional seaside town of Llandudno, the original turn of the century galleries are merged with stunning modern spaces in an award-winning architectural design. The six gallery spaces exhibit the best in international contemporary art and craft, showing artists and makers from Wales and beyond. With friendly staff, activities for all ages, a lovely shop and a bright and airy café, there's something for everyone.
The building is fully accessible and admission is FREE.
In its six galleries, cafê and meeting room MOSTYN shows exciting exhibitions which showcase the best contemporary art in Wales and from around the world. MOSTYN does not have a collection but displays a wide
range of exhibitions which change seasonally, and vary from large-scale thematic shows to small site-specific projects.
