Wild Worlds is an extraordinary exhibition transporting visitors through an immersive and engaging experience based on the theme of mystical stories of animals and fantastical creatures. Drawn from the extensive ceramics collection at Aberystwyth University, the exhibition focusses on the work of 20th century and contemporary Welsh, English, European, Mexican, South African and Chinese ceramicists. The collection reveals how animals are used to represent stories and cultural messages, and to evoke emotions.

Taking inspiration from the collection, commissioned artists will transform an entire gallery into a completely immersive environment for families - this is an exhibition full of discovery, performance and storytelling! Look out for accompanying summer activities too!

Wild Worlds includes ceramics on loan from the Ceramic Collection and Archive, Aberystwyth University.

Open Monday – Wednesday / Friday – Saturday 9.30am – 5.15pm. Thursday 9.30am – 7.45pm. Sunday 11am – 4pm.
(Closed on 25 & 26 December, 1 January and Easter Sunday)
