  • Best hot chocolate in the world! Also a must see museum... when my partner said he wanted to go I was reluctant. But when getting there I found it really interesting! A must see! 
  • 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.
  • Have a wonderful lunch in the café, traditional lamb sawl, which is great!
  • The museum house a large range of exhibits from Wales' history. The exhibits on mining were particularly interesting. And it's free, which is even better.
  • This place is amazing, I went here on Tuesday 17th May 2016 to visit a press conference about the British heart foundation which was founded in 1961. Before this year, people who had heart attacks were fucked, anyone else agree?
  • Really good day out for the whole family. Modern and history blend together really well. Smiley and happy staff. Recommended!
