Welcome to The World of Boats at Cardiff Bay. The Exhibition features some of the World's most fascinating boats set in a unique quayside location in Cardiff Bay. The exhibition is video hosted by TV's Dick Strawbridge who explains the evolution of boats from primitive dug-out canoes to hi-tech modern craft. Touchscreens and displays explain Propulsion, Navigation and some of the famous boats from history. In the Boat Lab area you can see first-hand the process of restoration and get more insight into how boats work.
