The Nelson Museum

Horatio Nelson was born in Norfolk, died at sea, and is buried in St Paul's Cathedral - yet Monmouth is home to a magnificent collection of Nelson material. Find out about the origins of the collection, and about the life, loves, death and commemoration of the famous admiral through displays of weapons, pictures, fine ceramics, silver and glass, ship models and letters.

Local History Centre

The history of the ancient Wye Valley market town is illustrated in displays in the same building as the Nelson Museum. Charles Stewart Rolls, co-founder of Rolls-Royce, lived near Monmouth and his exploits in balloons, early motor cars and aeroplanes are also featured in the History Centre.
