Monmouth Museum remains closed as we continue working with our collections in preparation to our move to Shire Hall. Abergavenny and Chepstow Museums are now closed for the winter. They will reopen on Saturday 19th February 2022. This is a planned period of closure to enable us to work on our collections, carry out staff training and refresh our exhibitions and shops. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Please note the grounds of Abergavenny Castle will remain open – 11am – 4pm (Closed 23rd December to 4th January inclusive).
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.
