We visited this museum for 30 minutes as part of a tour. We found it very interesting and informative. The exhibits are unique and they are accompanied by interesting audio/video segments to explain how everything worked.

Really good place, spacious, really good exhibits with modern tech used throughout the building. Easy to get around for wheelchair users with parking outside. Can eat here, but the main City centre is a short distance away. Also close to Swansea museum, Swansea marina and beach. Also has a nice balcony overlooking marina to sit and relax a bit.

There are plenty of displays to keep kids happy for a while on a rainy day. Lovely and clean and airy with lots of toilets. My kids were ready to leave after an hour or so but it is free entry what's not to like?

This is a fantastic decent Museum at Swansea Waterfront. Great displays from famous Welsh achievers, historic copper mining and Welsh sports apparel. A gift shop and a cafe in the ground floor just perfect while the teens are busy doing there thing over the computerised displays. Please I encourage everyone to make a tiny donation towards the museum It's for free anyway.

This is second to none. Fully interactive for all ages. Clean, lovely cafe, plenty of toilets and mobility access. Trails for children are fun and free.
