Pocket Guide: Swansea National Waterfront Museum Hotels

Located in the trendy Maritime Quarter of Swansea, the National Waterfront Museum tells the story of industry and innovation in Wales over the last 300 years. As part of the European Route of Industrial Heritage this is a thematic element of a collection of the most important industrial heritage sites in Europe. Inside you’ll find enough to occupy you for hours, with the beautifully designed space offering a range of regional history exhibits marrying interactive media with traditional displays.

Designed by architects Wilkinson Eyre, the Museum is housed in a Grade II listed warehouse building, formerly the Swansea Industrial & Maritime Museum, and ringed by a beautifully landscaped park. Opened in 2005, it represents one of National Museum Wales's biggest, most ambitious projects, costing over £35m to complete.

If you’re taking the kids for a day out in Swansea, National Waterfront Museum offers regular exhibits that will delight them. Both disabled visitors and those hard of hearing will get huge pleasure from the museum, too, thanks to its award winning disabled access, and British Sign Language captioning on all interactive content. For non-English speakers, this is one of the first museums in the United Kingdom to feature multilingual voiceovers for its exhibits.

Free to visit, the National Maritime Museum is one of Swansea’s top days out. Once you’ve had your fill of industrial history, stroll along to the picturesque marina full of yachts or enjoy a coffee in one of the many nearby cafes.
