“Charming building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

Beautiful red bricked building which used to be the administration building for the Bute empire.
A real asset to the Cardiff Bay area but could be used to a greater effect.
Looks lovely but not quite enough to see and do.....sparsely furnished .....another missed opportunity for celebrating Welsh culture, art and the uniqueness of Welsh culture through the ages

“Local history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

This is just a short walk from the dazzle of Cardiff Bay but it is well worth a visit. A tiny local history museum with wonderful photographs of residents of Butetown.

“The real story of Cardiff Bay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

Not always open and exhibitions vary but gives the real story of Cardiff bay away from the smaltzy gloss
