A lovely well presented and informative modern museum. One or two of the interactive displays didn’t function for us.
This is a must for anybody with an interest in the Industrial revolution and the contribution made by Wales and it’s people

Big congratulations to Swansea university and the national waterfront museum for hosting this event. So glad we attended it. We all learnt lots and it was so much fun for the children and all absolutely free.
Very interesting place to visit. Plenty to interest the whole family. No charge for entry but there is a place to leave donations if you wish. Ideal place to go if the weather is inclement. Which it sometimes is in South Wales.
Excellent, well laid out with freindly staff. Not too large so as too get lost in too many exhibits but enough to get a real appreciation of Swansea maritime history. Lots of interactive screens and would imagine great for children.
