Swansea Museum
Swansea Museum

Swansea Museum is the oldest museum in Wales. Completed in 1841, this Grade-2* listed building was commissioned by the Royal Institution of South Wales, a group of art and science enthusiasts. The building was designed to house the RISW’s array of collections as well as provide research and learning facilities. Under threat of closure, the Swansea City Council saved the building and its collections in 1996. Swansea Museum now provides free access to six galleries with a variety of exhibits from an ancient mummy’s tomb to temporary exhibitions on current issues and modern interests. The museum benefits from flat access from rear and side with disabled parking spaces at rear, thus allowing full access to all levels and galleries via the lift. The building itself is an icon to the city’s rich history.
