National Waterfront Museum
Step back in time as you browse displays and galleries depicting Welsh life, landscape and resources at the National Waterfront Museum. Old industrial Swansea meets the new city at this converted dockside warehouse building in the Maritime Quarter.
Wales was one of the earliest and most heavily industrialised countries on the planet. The nation reaped the benefits, but also suffered the consequences. A visit to the museum reveals true stories of wealth and poverty, upheaval and opportunity.
A series of 15 themed exhibits traces Welsh social and industrial development through interactive displays, film, photography and sculpture. Come to learn about the effects of development on local communities, the importance of natural resources, Welsh heroes and new frontiers of technology.
