Dylan Thomas Centre

Set in the heart of Swansea, a trip to The Dylan Thomas Centre is a must for all fans of Dylan and his work.

Home to the ‘Love the Words’ exhibition thanks to £935,700 funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund – join us to learn about the life and works of Dylan Thomas, the iconic Swansea born historical figure, through mixed mediums such as digital touch screens, hands-on activities, preserved original pieces and audio recordings of some of Dylan’s most famous works read by some of the world’s most well-known voices.

Open Tuesday – Sunday from 10am – 4:30pm, with free entry, the exhibition makes for the perfect way to immerse yourself in the life and times of Dylan, along with the heritage of our sea-town.

Walk through the timeline that was once Dylan’s life, from his small beginnings in the Uplands, to his passing in New York City in 1953, with a vast array of his works from times in between.

Visiting as a family? We host holiday activities themed around Dylan’s works every day outside of term time – so there’s plenty going on to keep your little ones entertained!

We are also proud to offer learning and outreach services, and our experienced literature and curatorial team can offer a variety of talks and lectures to suit all requirements – whether you are just beginning to learn about Dylan or have been familiar with his work for some years.

Between our Love The Words exhibition and temporary ‘I might want to smile’ exhibition there are plenty of reasons to check out the Dylan Thomas Centre.
