  • A small Museum (like spaces) but very interesting, and designed to engage both large and small to discover the city's history. The set up is in fact based on a variety of interactive activities, explaining various aspects of life in Cardiff over the past centuries, and the various transformations that the Welsh capital has had over time. Perhaps the spaces so reduced "sacrifice" a little enjoyment, but it's definitely an interesting visit to do.

  • I popped in out of curiosity while my wife was shopping and ended up staying for twenty minutes. It's not very big but there's enough to occupy locals and non-Cardiffians alike. It's free so I'll prob...  more »
  • Free, most informative museum, inter active displays, right in the city centre. Well worth popping in on the way past - and returning for more later, if you enjoyed it  more »

  • Fantastic FREE museum documenting the growth of the city and its people. Free audio guide and very child-friendly. Make sure you take a look at the beautiful tiled corridor before you leave. The only downside was that several of the interactive displays were out of order. However, that's all the more reason to visit and support with a donation. Overall a great selection of objects, creatively presented.
  • I really enjoyed coming to this museum and I will return here in the future.
  • Huge favourite with primary age kids, especially good place to spend time in if you're in Cardiff centre with children at the weekend, also check out Llaeth & Siege on the to floor of the same building. A real Cardiff gem.
  • A simple museum with some interesting items, though overall a little staid. OK for an hour or so on a rainy day.
  • Fantastic displays, very interesting for the whole family, really enjoyed it- well done Cardiff!
