Attraction Information

Since 1888 Newport Museum and Art Gallery has been collecting evidence of Newport's history, culture and environment. The archaeology collections span over 100 years of collecting and represent thousands of years of human activity in and around Newport.

Natural History: The point on the world which is now Newport began many millions of years ago and has moved gradually from just below the equator to the north west edge of Europe.

The Social History collection in the museum is made up of 20,700 objects reflecting the everyday lives of ordinary people in Newport and the surrounding areas over the last 200 years.
