National Waterfront Museum

Attractions History & culture

The National Waterfront Museum tells the story of industry and innovation in Wales, now and over the last 300 years.

Our vast industrial and maritime heritage is ready to explore via cutting-edge, interactive technology married with traditional displays. It means a unique, captivating and involved visitor experience lies in wait at Wales's newest national museum.

The Industrial Revolution in Wales had a tremendous effect on People, Communities and Lives as well as that of the rest of the World. Visitors can soak up the history with a breathtaking mix of old and new in the city's rapidly developing maritime quarter.

The National Waterfront Museum is housed in spectacular fashion, in an original and listed waterfront warehouse linked to a new, ultra-modern slate and glass building. Here you can discover the Transport, Materials and Networks that were so important and the 'big things' that contributed so much to the industrial history of our nation.

The National Waterfront Museum puts you in charge of the experience, allowing you to delve as deeply into the exhibitions, displays and information as you want. Visit us and lose yourself in the rich and enthralling history of Welsh industry and innovation, where the technology of today puts the past at your fingertips.
