Abergavenny Museum & Castle

In light of the latest Welsh Government Covid Rules our museums will close from Friday 4th December. We already had a planned period of closure during the winter months to enable us to work on our collections.

We look forward to welcoming you back from February half term onwards. Details of how this opening will look will be posted here and on our social media pages once we know what is possible to meet the guidance applicable at the time.

The museum is open on a limited basis. Initially, we will be open on Thursdays 11:00 am-2:00 pm and Sundays 1:00-4:00 pm.

Visits to the museum will be on a free pre-booked basis only and bookings can be made here

As a valued customer we would like to thank you for your continued support

Abergavenny Museum houses a wonderful collection of artefacts, permanent displays and temporary exhibitions, detailing the history of the town and wider area.

The museum, which was founded on 2nd July 1959, is located in a Regency building, built on top of a Norman motte within the grounds of Abergavenny Castle. 

Today, the combination of a wonderful museum and picturesque castle represents a fantastic attraction for those looking to learn more about the area, explore the castle grounds, or find a great spot for a picnic.

The museum’s displays tell the story of this historic market town from prehistory through to the present day. The displays are on several levels, with some help most areas are accessible to wheelchair users.
