Monmouth 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 our museums are closed at the moment, we are developing our digital channels to share with you some fantastic artefacts. To find out more, LIKE our Facebook page and FOLLOW us @Mon_Heritage on Twitter. We are also challenging you to tell us more about some of our Mystery Objects. Would you like to get involved and help MonLife with any research? Keep a lookout for those posts 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.
