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.

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.
