Brecknock Museum & Art Gallery is currently closed to visitors.
Brecknock Museum & Art Gallery is funded by and administered by Powys County Council and occupies an historical Grade 2* listed building, the old Shire Hall, at the heart of the town of Brecon. One of the finest small museums in Wales, it was first established in 1928 by the Brecknock Society and moved from its previous home in a nearby former chapel to its current location in 1974.
Built in 1842, Brecknock Shire Hall has dominated the local area for over a hundred and seventy years. Encircled by Grade II listed iron railings, the building is one of the finest examples of early Victorian “Greek Revival” architecture in Wales. At the heart of the building lies the assize court room.
Brecknock Museum & Art Gallery offers a fascinating glimpse of the rich and varied past of Breconshire, an outstandingly beautiful area of the country.
