Abergavenny Museum presents the story of this historic market town from Prehistoric and Roman times right through to the present day. Displays include recreations of a Victorian Welsh farmhouse kitchen and a saddler's workshop. Housed in a Regency hunting lodge, the museum is set within the ruins of Abergavenny's Norman castle. As the seat of the medieval lords of Abergavenny, the castle was the focus for over three centuries of border warfare. In 1176 it was the scene of the infamous massacre of the Welsh chieftains by the Norman Lord, William de Braose. The castle and its picturesque grounds have been open to the public since 1881.
