Abergavenny Museum is set in the grounds of a ‘ruined' Norman Castle, where you can enjoy a picnic during the summer and spectacular views on colder days. The collections are of local significance, with particular emphasis on costume, rural life, agriculture, domestic and working life.
We have six display areas. The Keep Gallery which tells the History of Abergavenny from Prehistory to the present day. A World War II Air Raid Shelter, Saddlers Shop, Welsh Kitchen and Basil Jones' Grocery Shop. Our temporary exhibitions which change three or four times per year, take place in our recently refurbished gallery.
You can discover more about the castle using our family backpacks, which are free to use. In addition we run a program of events and educational activities to suit all interests. Please visit our website for up to date details. ‘Follow' us on Twitter and ‘Like' us on Facebook.
