The National Showcaves Centre for Wales details...

Look forward to a fun-filled day out with the children at the award-winning National Showcaves Centre for Wales in the Brecon Beacons National Park. A highlight is sure to be discovering the amazing natural wonders of Dan yr Ogof Cave, discovered in 1912 by the Morgan brothers. See wonderful formations such as the Alabaster Pillar and the Rasher of Bacon.

Next, experience the magic of Cathedral Cave, decorated with fragile ’straw’ stalactites. Offering an insight into how man used the caves in the past, Bone Cave contains human skeletons, pottery fragments, jewellery and more.

Move on to the Dinosaur Park, home to over 200 life-sized dinosaur models, the Shire Horse Centre and Mr Morgan’s Victorian Farm to meet a variety of farmyard animals and learn about life on the farm in the past.

The kids will be delighted to discover two undercover playgrounds at the National Showcaves Centre for Wales – the Jurassic-themed karting track for 3-6 year olds and Barney’s Adventure Playground complete with aerial walkways, rope climbs, tunnels and slides for 6-10 year olds.

Equipped with the latest interactive technology, the Museum presents a range of relevant information in a family-friendly way. Learn about different theories explaining what happened to the dinosaurs and the importance of conservation. Finally, leave time to become an archaeologist in the Fossil House, step back to 700BC at the Iron Age Village and try panning for gold.

Online booking is required.
