Museum History

History of the Museum

The Anthony Brandt Museum is located in the heart of the scenic Brecon Beacons National Park in Wales.

It houses the art collection of the late, internationally recognised artist Anthony Brandt. The building was both an artists studio and home of the Brandt’s. Anthony brought the former Welsh Chapel when it was a derilict wreck in the 70’s, and spent considerable time and effort refurbishing it to become the ideal studio space for him to work in.


Upon Anthony partner Mitzi’s death the property, along with the artworks, were passed into the care of the Keppe Brandt foundation to preserve and promote his body of work. Since 2010 the building and it grounds have undergone extensive restoration and upgrading of facilities, including damp proofing, humity control and structural integrity. This remediation work also provided the opportunity to reorganise and effectively display all of Anthony Brandt’s work in a logical and curated manner, in keeping with the standards required of a modern museum.
