Details

Find out about the life, loves, death and commemoration of the famous admiral through displays of weapons, pictures, fine ceramics, silver and glass, ships models and letters.

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, ships models and letters.

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