Made in Wales

National Waterfront Museum

Wales has seen many changes since the 1930s. We have evolved from a nation where heavy industry and backbreaking work was the norm, to a country of high tech commerce, research and tourism. As the world has changed, so has Wales.

Made in Wales explores some of these changes and displays objects and artefacts from 1930 to the present day.

Many of the objects will be recognisable to visitors. Household names such as Hoover, Smith’s Clocks, Corgi Toys and Spectrum Computers bear testimony to the wide and diverse manufacturing base that we have grown up with.
