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.

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.

We really enjoyed visiting the museum. A very broad range of exhibits and has much to appeal to young children.
