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.

  • Love coming here to sing sea shanties! When our group comes we're always made to feel welcome, and the food's apparently good. Great display of the boats (if not a bit limited), but very atmospheric to sing shanties amongst them!
  • Great food...breathtaking view...chilled...friendly relaxed staff
  • Fantastic museum. Friendly staff and great exhibition. Particular highlight was being able to sit outside in the sun next to the Anglia Pipedream having a coffee. Will definitely visit again. Many thanks. Chris.
