Open Doors is organised by Cadw and provides an opportunity to discover more about the history and culture of Wales by welcoming the public to explore a vast array of different historical sites.

There will be an opportunity at Meirionnydd Record Office to view original material and experience a guided tour of the building. It will also be possible to see conservation work, and for children to make artwork based on some of the collection kept at the Record Office.
