“A great little museum.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014

This is an small but interesting museum. I found the exhibition about Dylan Thomas interesting as well as the history of the copper industry in Swansea. There is various things to see including antiques and China. The mummy was particularly interesting. Unfortunately the curiosity room was closed.

The best museum in Swansea. Well worth a visit and best of all its free.

“Small but interesting, excellent Egyptian area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2014

We enjoyed a visit to this museum on a Saturday afternoon in May.

Lots of interesting, hand on exhibits. The children found all very interesting. We particularly liked the Egyptian area upstairs - this was excellent.

This is a proper museum, and we will definitely visit again. Pity the curiosity room was not open, but this may have just been a one-off closure.

“Fine museum”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014

This museum is okay. It's a small museum located in an old building and has a bit of everything. Exhibition about Dylan Thomas, life of locals long time ago, stuffed animals, antiques, china. The most interesting is the mummy.

“A proper museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

I adore this museum. It reminds me of a slightly eccentric aunt - never quite know what your going to get.

The Dylan Thomas exhibition is a must; being transported back in time to an authentic pub is worth making the trip alone.

The staff are friendly, knowledgable and always ready to chat.

Of course the highlight is always the Mummy.

“good one”

A little gem in the middle of Swansea, not much parking spaces to the place itself...but there is a large multi-storey car park nearby
