Details

Set in a Georgian Stable Block, with central courtyard, the stone archway and cobbled walkway gives a wonderful ambience to the start of your visit.

The Museum houses a collection of local artefacts with an outstanding display of Japanware, which was made in the town from the middle of the eighteenth century. Learn more about Pontypool Park and ponder on the very interesting collections of Victorian 'domestic life', Glantorfaen Dinning Furniture, Churches and Chapels, commercial history, clockmaking, Rorke's Drift and inddustrial Torfaen.

The Barker Gallery is fast building a reputation for its fine art exhibitions, sculptural and ceramic displays and the small 'Cafe Art' area is a regular slot for 'selling' exhibitions for local artists. ACW Principality Collectorplan is available.

The Dobell-Moseley Library & Archive is available for research into the area and its people. Other facilities include room hire for conference/training sessions and community group use, together with a programme of workshops for schools and adult learning.
