Wales was the furthest outpost of the Roman Empire. In AD 75, the Romans built a fortress at Caerleon that would guard the region for over 200 years. Step back in time at the National Roman Legion Museum and explore life in a far-flung outpost of the mighty Roman Empire.

  • Great amount of relics and information about the history of Caerleon. Worth a visit. The children get to dress up and there is a play area. 
  • I was lucky enough to visit the museum during my recent visit to Wales. The artefacts, being reminders of what happened during the Roman times, will be there for years to come and will assist school c...  more »

  • Excellent place. Amazing things to see and staff were very helpful. On top of this it's free unless you make a well deserved donation.
  • Caerleon has 4 key part's of Roman Interest. The National legion Museum is free to enter and hold a large number of find and interpretations displayed in a manor which made it easy to understand for my 11 yr old son and also my wife and myself (basically suitable for all ages).
  • Great time had by all lots of fun running around the amphitheatre ruins and all free!
  • Great indoor museum with visuslefects to improve understanding of the buildings use as a bath house
  • Small, but well worth the visit if you're in the area.
