Visited this museum during half term, and spent longer than expected exploring a relatively small place with lots to look at. I guess the reason why we spent longer than expected was the children’s activity sheet or mouse trail, plus the ‘find the skulls’ hunt,...More

We were passing and spent an hour in this free to enter museum. The First World War exhibition was excellent and very poignant. The mock up trench particularly so. The artefacts were fascinating. Really worth a call! Thank you.

It’s only a small museum and it’s free to go in but, even so, we found the museum a bit odd. There’s some really special pieces within the museums collection, such as the mummy, and we really enjoyed seeing that and some of the other...More

We all enjoyed the World War exhibit. It was very moving and thought provoking. The children loved the section on 'old Swansea' and they particularly enjoyed the Egyptian mummy.

The best part is probably the "mummy". Some good Ancient relics and the displays are tidy and well informed. No parking here so a bit of an inconvenience.

Enjoyed looking round this one more than the Waterside museum, there were lots of different things to see and the children enjoyed searching for the mice and getting stickers. Both are free. It is easy to park in the Waterside car park and walk round...More
