Lots of lovely little activities to do with the children plus lots for them to explore. Children loved the Egyptian Mummy and my eldest's topic in school is WW2 and this was perfect to stir the imagination for that! Love the new interactive Music room!

Lovely old building housing displays of items of local historical interest, a room displaying beautiful Swansea pottery, and a very special place for the mummy that has lived in the museum for very many years.

Small and fairly interesting museum. Free to go in, staff very enthusiastic and friendly. Not comparable with the great London museums but worth going just to be humbled by the skin of a Passenger Pigeon - once the world's most abundant bird but wiped out...More

What an impressive display! They also have their very own Egyptian Mummy, but for me the room dedicated to The First World War is so impressive and well worth a visit. The trench is so realistic.

It's free. Currently in process of being updated but still lots to see. Ceramics is wonderful. Helpful staff, they will advise about other things in Swansea as the City has [unbelievably] no tourist information office.

The museum is really interesting, with special exhibitions, world war 1 exhibitions and local specialty. An amazing place

Enjoyed the exhibit of The Great War. The British played a big role in the victory, so it was interesting to see it. Should have a tour guide to explain the details.

They say size does not necessarily matter, and this is certainly true of this not-so-big museum, because what a gem it is, full of local lore, including a Dylan Thomas connection. My favourites are the stunning pottery room and the social history dioramas. Less so...More

First time I have visited for a number of years - although I used to come here often as a child. I was pleased to see Hor the mummy still on display. I was disappointed though that the Welsh kitchen has gone which was always...More
