Step back in time at the National Roman Legion Museum and explore life in a far-flung outpost of the mighty Roman Empire.
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.
Built in 1850, the museum became part of Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales in 1930. Today at Caerleon you can learn what made the Romans a formidable force and how life wouldn’t be the same without them. You’ll be able to see Exhibitions and Artefacts that show us how they lived, fought, worshipped and died.
