  • Fab building. Interactive learning. Fascinating. You can take prams around but you may have issues with how wide access is. A really good free historical location.
  • Spent an hour in here with the kids, they have activity sheets at the door for the kids to go hunting for info. Lots of interesting things to look at, and replica armour and helmets you can try on. Staff were all really friendly. Definitely worth a visit if your in the area. Couple of doors down is the Roman baths, equally as good.
  • Great museum highly recommended. Lots of local Roman relics and some interesting reconstructions. Free entry.
  • Fantastic day out for any age, lovely scenary and nice walk around a roman amphitheatre, which isn't too far from the museum. It has a lot of history too look at and read about!
  • Interesting little museum, you could probably fill half an hour or so here, some great exhibits. Definitely worth visiting along with the other attractions at Caerleon.
