The Nelson Museum & Local History Centre

Horatio Nelson was born in Norfolk, died at sea and is buried in London, yet Monmouth has one of the world’s best collections of Nelson material. Learn about the life, loves, death and commemoration of the famous Admiral, the origins of the collection and Monmouth’s history.

The Nelson collection includes both personal and commemorative material, and is particularly noted for the large number of personal letters. Star exhibits include Nelson's fighting sword, and a selection of outrageous forgeries, including Nelson's 'glass eye'.
