  • Beautiful Museum with beautiful décor, it is worth to linger some hours at least. I went with my school some years ago and I always keep very beautiful memories.

  • Excellent museum with great exhibitions. Could easily spend more than just a day here. I would particularly recommend the interactive "Census Street" exhibition for a fascinating look at the past from details drawn from a census taken on one particular street covering businesses and residents.
  • It is a really great venue. Welsh oriented with many diverse exhibits, some of these change on a regular basis. A tremendous amount of local history. Right at the waters edge which has floating exhibits. And it has a great cafe. Well worth a visit, on your own, couples or families.
  • Nice Museum although not very big. Friendly and helpful staff who were always at hand to answer any questions. Lots of interactive videos which are very informative with the option of choosing English or Welsh language.
  • Fantastic State of The Art Museum. Enjoyed All Exhibits & Displays. They Covered Everything Past & Presents & Possible Future. Excellent Facilities !!!! Excellent Cafe With Great Choices & Options. Prices Are Good. Free Toilets Very Clean. Staff Very Friendly. Thanks XXXX
  • This was an incredible museum. It was very informative and well set up, with a lot of interactive displays that conveyed interesting information, and also were easy to use. I recommend the Waterfront museum to anyone who wants to learn more about many different things, in fun and enjoyable ways.
