  • Visited on a very wet day & were not disappointed. Not a big place but enough to see for a couple of hours. The highlight was visiting the pub replica (no beer!) where one of the staff told us stories...  more »

  • Private museum and historic collection. A must visit location. Within, you find a walking street, early 1940,s. Realistic rebuild, included pub.. single admission, as of Nov 2016, about 5.50 pounds. Fair enough! Card payment accepted. Free parking available.
  • An enjoyable visit, we had to cut our journey short but the time we spent there was great. The stuff they've got there is the sort of thing everyone had in their house. We were entertained by stories from wartime and the gentleman (sorry I can't remember his name) made you think about how bad things were and how much we've advanced (if you can call it that). This is privately funded by 2 brothers that wanted to educate children about what happened in Swansea during the war. As it's about swansea, our city why isn't it better supported by the council or Welsh office? It is well worth a visit to reflect on where we've come from.
  • Very interesting and very educational. Immersive given how much 1940s stuff there is. Needs a good clean as quite a lot of dust has accumulated! Could be even better with a bit more touching up here and there.
  • Love the place.
  • good place
