It has been updated and is worth a visit. Parking outside. Plenty of places to eat close by. We found my grandfather's name which was interesting.

Amazing museum with so much history regarding World war 1 and World war 2. The Zulu artifacts were so interesting. Staff so friendly and helpful would recommend all visitors to call in when they visit Brecon

Being ex Army, I was obviously going to give this place a visit. It's small but bursting with well organised displays. If you are interested in Rorke's Drift and the Zulu's, they have a excellent display. Well worth a visit.
