National Roman Legion Museum
The more you see, the more we do.
The National Art Pass lets you enjoy free entry to hundreds of museums, galleries and historic places across the UK, while raising money to support them.
The museum reveals how people lived, fought, worshipped and died in this farthest outpost of the mighty Roman Empire.
The fortress at Caerleon was first built in AD 75 – one of only three permanent fortifications in Roman Britain and a key military base.
Today, the inside of the fortress holds a museum devoted to exploring ancient life in both Caerleon (Isca) and Usk (Burrium), as well as their environs.
The site also houses the ruins of the most complete amphitheatre in Britain and the only remains of a Roman legionary barracks anywhere in Europe.
