“Fascinating place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

This Museum was really interesting and had heaps of well written information signs. The little school house section was interesting also. The Curator who was there was full of anecdotes about the area so we stayed for ages talking to her. I would highly recommend a visit to this lovely little heritage museum.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

Well done Mrs Ferris . you have created a wonderful museum -very interesting . I would like to see more about the history of Swansea although the artifacts about the wars was well done too..
Loved looking at the old school room and the equipment they had to use - slates and dip pens.

“Well worth a look”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014

An unexpected professionalism in terms of the presentation of the visuals and information. Obviously some caring and competent people have contributed time and effort. Many of these facilities seem to club you into submission with lack of theme and thoughtless presentation of endless material, not so here. You walk out with some grounding on the events and main characters of early settlement and development. Don't expect a full history and social lesson, just take the snapshot on offer. Staff were welcoming and helpful.
