Chepstow Museum

Our customers and staff as well as the community are our priority.  Due to staff shortages, protecting health and redistributing resources to support priority areas across Monmouthshire County Council we have to close until further notice.

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

Although all of our facilities are closed at the moment as things develop digitally our Museums are also challenging you on their Mystery Objects.  If you would like to get involved and help MonLife with any research then please follow them on Facebook @MonLifeHeritageMuseums or follow @Mon_Heritage on Twitter.  Here over the next few days MonLife Heritage will also share with you some fantastic artefacts so keep a look out and let us know what you think


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.
