Swansea Museum

Attractions History & culture

Swansea Museum is the oldest in Wales. It was opened in 1841 by a group of local people who were known as The Royal Institution of South Wales, which gave the Museum building its original name.

Swansea Museum is a real treasure house of the ordinary and the extraordinary from Swansea past, and is a focus for the future of the city and its people, as well as providing a visitor experience that we hope you find enjoyable.
