Formed in 1990 to house the Charles F. Tunnicliffe collection, Oriel Môn is an art gallery and museum at the heart of Anglesey.
Oriel Môn changes lives by caring for, interpreting and promoting Anglesey's unique heritage and culture. It seeks to inspire creativity, and to provide learning opportunities and enjoyment for everyone.
Oriel Môn is now managed by the Isle of Anglesey Council and relies on support from the local authority, the Isle of Anglesey Charitable Trust and the Oriel Môn Trust. Income from sales of art, shop sales , donations and venue hire help support our educational, community engagement, conservation and artistic programmes.
Oriel Môn reopening - booking your visit to Oriel Môn
Our new opening times are Wednesday to Sunday, 10am to 4pm.
We are encouraging visitors to book their free visit through a new online timed ticketing system. This will ensure we can manage the numbers of people on site at any one time in a safe manner, as well as being compatible with the Track, Trace and Protect scheme.
Alternatively, you can visit without making a booking in advance, but we ask that you share your name and contact details with a member of staff on our ticket desk. We will not allow entry to anyone who is not willing to share their contact details for the Track, Trace and Protect scheme.

Reopening Oriel Môn’s doors – changes you can expect
We have all been working hard to be able to open our doors. The wellbeing and safety of our staff and visitors is our priority. We have made changes on site, as well as changes to how people arrange their visit.
A summary of the changes are:
- We have installed automatic hand sanitisers throughout the building and encourage everyone to use these, especially on entry
- Please respect and be kind to other visitors and staff when visiting us – we want everyone to enjoy their time at Oriel Môn in a safe environment. Please be mindful that our staff are working in a new environment – we are all learning to adjust to a Covid19 reality
- We have a one way flow around the building, including the shop. Please follow our signage and respect 2 metre social distancing
- It is a requirement that all visitors wear a mask, unless there is a medical reason not to. Our staff will be wearing visors or masks. Please advise a member of staff if you need to lip read so that they can help you
- Visitor numbers will be limited within each area
- We have had to remove most of the items in our children’s play areas including books, dressing up and toys. We will have some craft materials on each specific table and we will continue to make our backpack activities available (they will be cleaned and quarantined for 72 hours before being made available again)
- Our café is now open for indoor seating. You are advised to book a table in advance with the café – 01248 751516. There is also a takeaway offer and, weather permitting, exterior seating too
- Our toilets will be open to the public but will only admit 1 person at any time to avoid close contact. We have a simple lock on the outside of the toilet doors to ensure only 1 person can gain entry at any one time. We encourage hand sanitising before and after a visit to the bathroom
- Our outdoor play area will be open but we encourage parents or guardians to ensure social distancing. We also encourage using automatic hand sanitiser before entering the play area
- We strongly encourage the use of card payment in our shop and café. The contactless limit is now £45. There is no minimum spend for card payments
- We will not be hosting any onsite events or activities in 2020 – but we will be hosting activities online. Do let us know what you would like to see us develop, if you haven’t already filled in our survey
- If you are interested in purchasing something that is in our physical shop, we can arrange phone and collect
Please enjoy the exhibitions and support our artists and craft makers. Oriel Môn relies on earned income (normally 48%), so please also consider donating to Ymddiriedolaeth Oriel Môn and becoming a Supporter. We need your support. Thank you.
