Two million visitors for National Waterfront Museum

2 million visitors

The National Waterfront Museum in Swansea has welcomed its two millionth visit, just eight years after opening its doors in October 2005.


Welcoming on average 250,000 visitors each year from across Swansea, Wales, Britain and beyond, the Museum is most certainly continuing to make its mark on Wales’s cultural map.


A visit to this iconic building gives visitors the chance to explore exciting human stories about innovation and industry in Wales, now and over the past 300 years.

Museum head Steph Mastoris said that the National Waterfront Museum considered it a "real honour” to welcome its two millionth visitors.

“As well as presenting visitors with a fascinating free day out, the Museum plays a key role as one of Swansea’s major attractions thus adding to the city’s cultural offering and playing an important part in its regeneration," she stated.

“We’re delighted to be providing the quality of exhibitions and events, as well as top levels of customer service that keep visitors coming back time and time again."


The National Waterfront Museum displays 100 audio visual exhibits including 36 state of the art interactive displays. It features objects from across Wales, including a replica of the world’s first steam locomotive, a brick press and one of the very few surviving coal wagons.
