Abergavenny Museum

Attraction

Abergavenny MuseumAbergavenny Museum

This fascinating museum is ideally located in the magical land of a 'ruined' Norman Castle. Rich in history, the collections are all very unique and have strong local links. Whether you are interested in rural life, agriculture or costumes, there are many interesting facts for everyone. You can even learn about how working life was like in the past. If you would like to make some wonderful memories, why not indulge in a lovely picnic on the grounds of this museum? The views are fantastic. All of the displays are impeccable and there are 6 in total. Learn about what happened since the Prehistory at Abergavenny, or get to know about an incredible World War II Air Raid Shelter. Each display is fascinating in its own way and you also have some temporary exhibitions which change a few times yearly. If you want to learn more about the castle while having some fun, there are some great educational programmes available for all. Those events can even be catered to individual groups and are really great. *

Author's Review

If Abergavenny and its surrounding areas are fantastically steeped in history and atmospherically fantastic! As far as small towns go this one, simply has it all. It has charm, character, and with it only being positioned 6 miles from the border between England and Wales, you can easily see why it gets tens of thousands of visitors every year. Medieval Abergavenny is a little town with a big personality. What I like so much about the castle and museum is it to shares that same personality. So no matter whatever the weather, you can be rest assured there is something for everyone here no matter what age. In short, I think a trip to both the castle and museum should be on everybody's to do list.
