Visit the 1940s Swansea Bay museum to discover for yourself what life was like for civilians on the ‘Home Front’ during World War II. 1940s Swansea Bay tells the story of the impact of the German Luftwaffe bombing raids on the area, and how the local people managed to cope with the devastation.
Short films and displays of actual material from the period help bring to life the time when everyone had to carry a gas mask and identity card.
You’ll experience the sights and sounds of an air raid, sitting in a bomb shelter. See some of the everyday foods and groceries that were available during the war - could you survive on a typical week’s rations?
Open almost every day, with a gift shop and cafe, this is a fun and interesting visit for the whole family in all weather. Check our website for upcoming events.
