1900 Tour ends
1915 - 2200 Meal at a restaurant in Cardiff (payable locally)
National Museum Cardiff is home to the Welsh national collection of fine and applied art. This is a unique resource documenting the history of art in Wales since the 16th century and a major international collection of British and European art including works of Monet and Renoir. It is also has diverse collections from Industry, Biodiversity and Culture. See more here https://museum.wales/cardiff/
The National Museum of Wales was founded in 1907, but it contains the art collection of the former Cardiff Museum of Natural History, Arts and Antiquities, begun in 1882. The first home for the new national art collection was in eleven police cells and a corridor in the Cardiff Law Courts. It was transferred to the present building in the 1920s.
Please register to attend and ensure that you arrive in good time to experience the tour (by 1800). Spaces are limited to 25 people.
In the heart of the city, National Museum Cardiff has grand halls and gallery spaces; conference, breakout and catering facilities, as well as a tiered lecture theatre – perfect for the BIOS Scientific Conference 2017.
Cost for BIOS members - £220 (both days) & £135 (one day)
This year we have a maximum of 120 places available - so please book promptly!
The BIOS is not arranging accommodation this year as there is a wide choice of hotels with various ratings in central Cardiff to suit tastes and budgets.
Here are some suggestions that you can book directly yourself:
Payment by employers
If your employer wishes to pay your registration fee direct, please consult the BIOS office (email firstname.lastname@example.org or call +44 (0)1353 66 55 41).
Your employer may insist on issuing a purchase order to cover your registration: if so, it is your responsibility to start and follow up this process.
Please note that no refunds will be paid for cancellations (for all or part of the event) made after 25th May 2017. This is because it would be too late to resell your place or adjust numbers for catering purposes after that time.
If you find yourself unable to attend after that time, you may send a replacement delegate. If the replacement does not have the same member privileges as you, she/he will be liable to pay the difference between your payment and what she/he would have paid to register.
