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
Horatio Nelson was born in Norfolk, died at sea, and is buried in St. Paul’s Cathedral – yet Monmouth is home to a magnificent collection of Nelson material. Find out about the origins of the collection, and about the life, loves, death and commemoration of the famous Admiral through displays of weapons, pictures, fine ceramics, silver and glass, ships models and letters.
The history of the ancient Wye Valley market town is illustrated in displays in the same building. Charles Stuart Rolls, co-founder of Rolls-Royce, lived near Monmouth and his exploits in balloons, early motor cars and aeroplanes are on display.
