  • I've walked past a couple of times and admired the building from the outside but never ventured in. A lovely building inside with a good video presentation on the Bay Area played every 20 minutes.
  • Great place to visit, it really shows the impact that Wales had on the World with it's coal mining and exportation. If you do visit, go and see the short film. It's worth it.
  • Love this building. Still there after all new modern buildings built around it.
  • Cardiff's picturesque, terracotta Pierhead Building. Beautiful ceramic staircase. An evocative, emotional 7 minute movie worth watching. www.difflomats.co.uk
  • Great building, good for nice pictures, very interesting to learn about it as it is free to visit
