Chepstow Museum

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 Tuesdays 11:00 am–2:00 pm and Saturdays 1:00–4:00 pm.

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

Chepstow Museum reveals the rich and varied past of this ancient town, once an important port and market centre. The wine trade, shipbuilding and salmon fishing are among Chepstow’s many industries featured in displays with atmospheric settings. Photographs, programmes and posters recall the pastimes of local people, whilst 18th and 19th century paintings and prints illustrate the everlasting appeal of Chepstow and the Wye Valley to artists and tourists alike. The Museum is just across the road from Chepstow Castle in an elegant 18th century house built by a prosperous Chepstow merchant family.
