Attraction Information

The charming and welcoming Abergavenny Museum is set within the grounds of an atmospheric 'ruined' Norman Castle, where you and the kids can enjoy a picnic during the summer or alternatively a brisk crisp walk on colder days! The museum building was formerly a hunting lodge built by the Marquess of Abergavenny.

The fascinating displays tell the story of this historic market town from prehistory through to the present day. The displays are exhibited on several levels and with some help most areas are accessible to wheelchair users and those in buggies.

The museum also features an Activity Room for children where there is the opportunity to colour, cut and stick stuff! At certain times they offer workshops led by museum staff too so there are plenty of chances to slip extra fun into the day!

It's a fun and educational stop for folks with curious smalls, with plenty to see and do but also plenty to learn so school agers should come out with some interesting knowledge!

You can also stop and have a picnic in the grounds if you like too, so bring the frisbee!
