This is a lovely building that tells the story of Cardiff Bay along the years.
It's well worth a 15-30 minutes visit or so.

This building really takes centre stage in the Cardiff Bay Area and is a nod to the history of this lovely City. Beautiful building.

This building truly is beautiful, in the heart of Cardiff Bay. Made with a rich red brickwork, a great addition to the bay

Beautiful old building so well maintained. Well worth a visit or just a time filler. Shame you couldn't go inside and see what i can only imagine would be stunning mouldings & workmanship. (closed because of covid-19)

Though I was aware of this building, I had no idea it was a free gallery. The gallery had exhibits and information panels which revealed more information regarding Cardiff's history. Worth a few minutes to check it out!

This was a small and mildly interesting place to check out. Especially on a cold and rainy day its fine. It gives a history of the city and the bay.

I visited the Pierhead building on 01/12/2019 with my family. After watching the short film on the history of the Bay in the hall, my family had some questions about the history of the building. We asked the gentleman on the front desk who was absolutely wonderful; He was highly informative, as well as being so kind and friendly! An excellent representative for the building! His Welsh was excellent, which greatly pleased my grandmother. He made the visit so pleasant and worthwhile! We just regret not getting his name!
