National Waterfront Museum

Oystermouth Road, Maritime Quater, Swansea, SA1 3RD, Wales

Welsh Tourist Board

At the National Waterfront Museum 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 putting the past right at 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 - to this day the term copper-bottomed implies quality and reliability!

15 themed galleries each tell 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.
