National Waterfront Museum
At the National Waterfront Museum in Swansea take in the sights and sounds of more than 300 years of Welsh industry and innovation.
Using cutting-edge interactive technology, the Museum puts you in charge of the experience, bringing the past right to your fingertips.
Located on the quayside of Swansea Marina - originally the South Dock of 1859 - the Museum stands in the former commercial heart of one of Wales's foremost industrial towns. Copper sheets made in Swansea once sheathed the hulls of the Royal Navy and to this day the term copper-bottomed implies quality and reliability.
The Museum boasts 15 themed galleries from Communities to People and Sea and from Networks to Money and Metal. Each tells a different aspect of this crucial period in Welsh history using a mix of touch screen technology and real objects, enabling visitors to be in charge of tracing their own experience of the fascinating - and still evolving - story of industrial Wales.
Imaginative events and exhibitions take place throughout the year, visit www.museumwales.ac.uk for further details. There is also a relaxing cafe selling freshly made sandwiches, snacks, cakes and light lunches.
