Brecknock Museum & Art Gallery 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.

The Museum 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.
