  • Very​ modern an informative museum. Free admission. Close to harbour and city centre. Very interesting! Nearby, you'll find cafes and pubs. The beach is just in walking distance. Recommended.
  • First off it's free, secondly when my son was little it was one of his favorite places to visit and he used to give the family a guided tour so there are plenty of good memories associated with the museum and they have some good interactive exhibits for the kids to enjoy
  • Its a very interesting place, a lot of swansea's history here and cool interactive walls and tables. as a tourist i found it very exciting and also pictures are allowed but you can't put them up online.
  • Great couple of hours to spend showing the kids what Swansea used to be like. Not expensive and the interactive sessions are great. Well worth a trip to if you haven't been in a while!
  • Not a patch on what it used to be, you would of thought all the money spent on making it bigger, would of made it better. All the good stuff was ripped out and is now stored in a warehouse in morfa.
