Remarkable museum detailing the Welsh military and it's involvement with both world wars (and some others). Fantastic items on display - ranging from clothing to swords to medals - that you won't find anywhere else.
Very interesting museum, learned a lot about the history of the royal Welch, something for all ages including some historical garments that the kids can dress up in while the adults read the exhibits that interest them, we spent 1 and a half hours and read most of the pre-20th century stuff and skimmed the more recent stuff due to time constraints. If you're interested in the history 2 hours should be enough.
