Chepstow Museum

Bridge Street
South Wales
NP16 5EZ

Chepstow Museum reveals the rich and varied past of this ancient town, once an important port and market centre. Wine trade, shipbuilding and salmon fishing are among Chepstow's many industries featured in displays with atmospheric settings. Photographs, programmes and posters recall the pastimes of local people, while 18th and 19th century paintings and prints illustrate the everlasting appeal of Chepstow and the Wye Valley to artist and tourist alike.

The Museum is just across the road from Chepstow Castle in an elegant 18th century house built by a prosperous Chepstow merchant family.
