National Waterfront Museum

The National Waterfront Museum in Swansea tells the human story of Welsh industry and innovation now, and over the past 300 years.

Ready to explore via cutting-edge, interactive technology, the Museum puts you in charge of the experience, allowing you to delve as deeply into the displays as you want.

Prepare to explore 100 audio visual exhibits including 36 state of the art interactive displays and some very large historic objects from across the country including a replica of the world’s first steam locomotive, a brick press and one of the very few surviving coal wagons.

Imaginative events and exhibitions take place all year, just visit www.museumwales.ac.uk/swansea for more details.

You can also enjoy freshly prepared sandwiches, soups and cakes at 'Y Cei' (The Quay) Cafe, or just relax with a speciality coffee. Y Cei is committed to sustainability and aims to eliminate single use plastic.

So visit us and lose yourself in the enthralling history of Welsh industry and innovation, where the technology of today puts the past at your fingertips.
