City & County of Swansea

The National Waterfront Museum was established through a legal and financial partnership between Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales and the City and County of Swansea, facilitated through a major grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

As well as providing visitors with an informative, fun and free day out, the Museum plays a key role as one of Swansea’s major cultural attractions that has helped greatly in the regeneration of the historic maritime quarter. The Museum also works closely with the City & County of Swansea, in co-ordinating the work of cultural organisations to help alleviate the impact of poverty and deprivation.

Since opening in October 2005, the £33.5 million attraction has developed an international reputation for digital interpretation and community engagement. Attracting over 250,000 each year, the Museum generates over £7m of local tourist income annually.
