The ruined remains of Abergavenny's Norman Castle, still standing in pleasant grounds, provided the site for a 19th century Hunting Lodge which in 1959 became the Abergavenny Museum.
From its modest beginnings we have seen the Museum expand to increase the range of exhibits displayed covering a time span from pre-history to the 20th century..
Don't miss Basil Jones Shop - I remember shopping in it when it was still in business in the High Street.
After the death of the owner the interior and all its contents, were moved lock, stock and barrel to the Museum. Most of the contents were even then long past their sell by date.
For older people it is fun to see familiar products of a bygone age, for children a lesson in how things were.
Likewise the Welsh Kitchen reconstruction shows the kind of home a relatively well off family might have lived in - very comfortable then, but not now - by modern day standards!
Admissiom is free - open all year, closes for lunch 1 - 2pm.
For some special events in the Museum and Castle grounds there may be a charge.
Parking in the Castle grounds is also free to Visitors.
