Blaina Heritage Museum offers a varied and comprehensive insight into the heritage of Blaina and Nantyglo. The museum is run by members of the Blaina Heritage Action Group, who are all unpaid volunteers. There is always a warm welcome for visitors and researchers and the volunteers have a vast knowledge of Blaina over many years. The museum was originally housed in one small room in the old Blaina District Office. It now occupies a large, recently refurbished hall on the top floor of the historic Blaina Institute.
The museum has objects going back to the Bronze Age (about 2000 BC) and traces the development and history of the village right up to the present day. All of the Blaina Census returns from 1871 to 1901 are available for researchers and the museum also holds a wealth of photographs, documents and other information.
