  • Great place to take the family for the day. The staff here can't do enough for you when you are there. I would highly recommend here for a day out and to learn some history of the UK and Wales also.
  • Would be a good idea to update this page.. Travelled to Caerleon, paid for parking, walked to the museum in torrential rain, to see it boarded up and find out it's closed until Sept!! I found out later that the website has this info on it, but many people, like myself, will act on the info on this page. We have been a number of times and it's a great museum, but so disappointing to see it closed today.
