1940's Swansea Bay

Attractions

Nestled in one of the most beautiful parts of South Wales, live the adventure of a lifetime at the WWII experience of 1940's Swansea Bay. It is conveniently located at only a couple of minutes from the M4. Take in this atmospheric destination and listen to the scary noise of bombs exploding, while you walk past an indoor RAF Plotting Room. You even get to visit an air raid shelter!
It is an incredible experience. Immerse yourself entirely into the war period and really get to feel how it would have felt then. Walk into a traditional pub from that epoque and join in a 1940's sing-along on the piano, walk past bomb damaged shops, or get familiar with all of the elements from the past. 1940's sewing machines, washing machines, clothes, uniforms, and even vacuum cleaners. The guided tours are fantastic and available daily. You could even choose to do an evening visit if that was more your thing. And if you fancy a coffee and a piece of cake, they have that too. While enjoying the visit, why not buy yourself a souvenir at the gift shop? It has some great replica Identity Cards amongst many other things *.

Review

Here at the 1940's Swansea Bay Museum you get to taste life and soak up the atmosphere of how life in Swansea and the rest of the UK would have been way back in the 1940's. At first when I arrived at this attraction, I was a little bit unsure of what to expect with this attraction being smack bang in the middle of an industrial estate, but the museums location really is quite fitting to the message the museum is trying to give. Complete with its own set of trenches and guard posts it is very easy to allow yourself to be transported back in time where Vera Lynn would have been at number one in the top 40 and ration books would have been just as important to you as your Gas Mask! The owners of this attraction have put everything they can into making your experience here one never to be forgotten and for that we here at Top 100 Attractions applaud them. It goes to show that it's not just money you need to create an attraction of this nature but devotion, patients and in this attractions case a love for all things 40's!
