Housed in an impressive new building, the National Waterfront Museum at Swansea tells the story of industry and innovation in Wales over the past 300 years.

The Industrial Revolution in Wales had a tremendous effect on people and communities, and visitors can soak up the history with a breathtaking mix of old and new in the city’s rapidly developing maritime quarter.

Industrial history and its impact on peoples lives are brought to life through images, films, maps, words, spoken testimony and the latest sensory technology.
