The museum does not have its own car park, this is due to the building being part of the Brecon Barracks. However, there are many options for parking which are all very close to the museum.  Along the street in front of the museum there are free spaces, or you have the option of The Watton long stay car park.


Our museum galleries are accessible to wheelchair users as it is all on one level with ample space to manoeuvre between displays. We also have an accessible toilet on the premises.


To keep everyone safe, if you are showing any of the symptoms of coronavirus, we request that you don’t visit, as you may be turned away to reduce the risk to other visitors and staff. No booking required.
