The first exhibits to meet the eye are a Stone Age axe and, a particularly fine example of, a Bronze Age Palstave (axe) which were found at Llanerch Padern Cwmtillery. These are set in murals depicting how they were used.

Next you will see a Roman and Celt locked in a fight to the death! Roman and Silurian (Celtic) kitchens are also displayed, these were found near Caerleon and Caerwent.

A case of Roman pottery from Prysg Field Caerleon accompanies these displays.

There is an exhibit of a farmhouse kitchen with a lady in Welsh national costume representing Tyr-Nicholas, the farm which stood on the site of Cwmtillery Colliery as described by the coal owner John Russell. Also there is a farm outhouse building with a display of farming tools, cheese press and a Tudor style doorframe from the Little Gwryhd Farm Cwmtillery.
