Details

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.
