  • Old and modern extension seamlessly conjoined. Very user friendly with an excellent coffee shop/lounge. Brilliant to see young school kids getting involved. 
  • 去斯旺西坞路过的博物馆。虽然建筑是红砖,但里面的装修就很现代化了。 博物馆免费,周六也没什么人。大多是家长带着孩子来科普的。 楼上有一些图片展,再往里面走是很多语音室,播放纪录片。 大厅有一个咖啡店,价格不贵。 
  • Cracking place .to the reviewer who said it's nothing to do with the waterfront it's based at the waterfront that's why it's named that duh .always something different every weekend or in the holidays...  more »

  • Love visiting this place. Fantastic interactive facilities & experience. Looking forward to going back there soon. THE WIFI WHICH IS MEANT TO BE FREE DOES NOT EVEN WORK. PLEASE IMPROVE
  • Fantastic place to learn a little about Welsh culture and history. Cafe was good and the information available to read was fantastic. Staff were brilliant and willing to answer all questions!
  • Masses to entertain three kids aged between 4 and 8. Fantastic interactive displays, free 'find it' trails for the kids, loads they're allowed to touch (rare for museums) and all FREE entry. What's not to like? Cafe offers good value food too. 👍
  • "Modern" museum that relies on electric gadgets and gimics most of which don't seem to work. Very few exhibits in the space that they have. What is there is disjointed poorly exhibited and explained. The display cases in the "network" exhibit have so many labels you can actually see the exhibits. Although the museum is free you get the sense that commercial interests are more important hence the entire ground floor of the old museum seemingly taken up with expensive cafes,and the staff dismantling most of the first floor marine exhibit to make room for I presume a wedding party. Can't spell local place names, frankly unforgivable. Wales has a fantastic maritime and industrial history which this museum totally fails to do justice too.
  • Always a nice place to take a look around, particularly if the weather is not too good. Lots of info about the industrial history of South Wales with many interactive displays. If you've been there previously then many of the displays are what's been seen before as they don't tend to change them. Best of all it's a free attraction. Also check out the book shop which has a good collection of local history books.
