'Hidden Now Heard' exhibition by Mencap Cymru

'Hidden Now Heard' exhibition by Mencap Cymru

Carmarthenshire Museum, Abergwili, Carmarthen, Carmarthenshire SA31 2JG.
Until 2006 many people with a learning disability in Carmarthenshire would have called Hensol Castle Hospital near Cardiff home. A smaller number would have lived at St. David’s Hospital in Carmarthen. As you see the exhibition you can listen to the stories of those who lived and worked at the hospitals. Some things may seem strange or unacceptable by today’s standards, but don’t judge the staff. Instead, judge the system that was in place at the time.

Free activities for children and adults, as part of Mencap Cymru’s 'Hidden Now Heard' exhibition at Carmarthenshire Museum. Places are limited to 10 people per workshop. Carmarthenshire Museum 01267 228696. Carmarthen Library 01267 224830.
