Having watched the film 'Zulu' many times, a visit to the museum was a must. A wealth of historical knowledge is available and some of the experiences described were very moving. Good displays of various battles and it was astounding to see the actual size of hand guns - much bigger than expected. Very interesting place to visit.

Can't believe the entrance fee is only £5, it is more than worth it. We spent 2 hours looking around the place but spent most of the time in the Zulu war section, the things they have from the Zulu war is amazing. The short film that is available to watch is very good and the staff that work there... More

The entry fee for this place is £5, but is well worth it. The museum provides an interesting and informative history of the Royal Welsh regiment throughout the years. It covers a vast array of conflicts, such as the Boer Wars, both World Wars, Afghanistan and of course the Zulu Wars. The displays are very detailed without being overwhelming. When... More

Lots of information about the history of this regiment. Rather crowded displays, but well worth taking your time to have a good look round. Very helpful staff

At £5 per entry, its a bit steep for such a small museum, but we found it interesting and packed with good exhibits. The best bits though are those relating to the Zulu wars

I recently stayed in Cardiff and decided to make a hour long detour on my way home to the Regimental Museum in Brecon. What a wonderful place to visit! Well worth the entrance fee. My plan was to only stay for a while - 2 hours later I emerged. If you want to know anything at all about the history... More

Lots to see here if you're interested in military history. A gentleman volunteer was extremely helpful when we enquired about finding out about a relative killed in WW1. He found out loads of information for us and printed out copies of various documents including a citation and war grave info. A must if you like war history. Thanks to the... More
