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.

  • 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.
