Nestled close to one of the entrances of the park, Pontypool's museum is a treasure trove of interesting stuff. As museums go it is quite small but well laid out. There are exhibits of the geological features of the area, some lovely examples of locally produced Japan ware, information about the Monmouth and Brecon Canal, and a wonderful exhibition of household equipment from the past. And as you walk along numerous other things will catch your eye. At the far end is the Oriel Barker Gallery which hosts exhibitions of artwork covering a variety of styles. There are some very talented local artists who show their work here on a regular basis. Back at the entrance is a gift shop, and there is a small cafe which also hosts art and craft exhibitions. From time to time it is possible to participate in art and craft events at the museum. Pontypool Museum is definitely worth a visit. p.s. the toilets are well decorated and always clean.
