Monmouth 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.

We are sure that you will understand this is to keep everyone safe and procedures take into account government and sector guidelines along with staff and visitor feedback. 

The museum will be open on a limited basis. Initially, we will be open on Tuesdays 11:00 am–2:00 pm and Saturdays 1:00 pm–4:00 pm.

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

Art History Online from MonLife Heritage Museums

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

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, the co-founder of Rolls-Royce, lived near Monmouth and his exploits in balloons, early motor cars and aeroplanes are on display.
