We and our two teenagers found the centre unexpectedly interesting and stimulating with the 'create your own poem from the words of Dylan Thomas' and the broadcasts on the early wireless being particular favourites of our teenagers.

Are you going to Swansea? So take your time to walk at the marina and visit the Dylan Thomas Centre. You will have the chance to buy one of the many books published with his love letters, poems, children stories, etc. and learn what he...More

Spend an hour or two tour the Dylan Thomas Centre. Very interesting exhibits, including writings, personal history, audio recordings, photographs and more all laid out in an engaging manner. It's all free, and there's a small gift shop. Staffed by the university, the centre doesn't...More

I'm no expert on Dylan Thomas but very much enjoyed this well presented exhibition of his life and writing. Some great interactive exhibits help you understand how he worked. We dawdled for a couple of hours, virtually unheard of for us.

Been to Swansea many times but never had the chance to visit the Dylan Thomas Centre. Really glad we made the effort this time though, really worthwhile. Informative and well laid out.
