Ahoy Graham,

Thanks for the info, I'm not living next door, but it's good to see that Swansea, where I've been since my start as sailor lots of time, has this museum, maybe one day I will have that oppertunity to go visit the Maritime museum.Anyway also a nice port to go ashore, which I did of course.

Swansea Maritime Museum

Graham, I am an old sea dog and I work in Swansea on Tuesdays & Thursdays. I would be grateful if you can let me know exactly where in Swansea the museum is.If you can let me know, I will endeavour to visit one day during my lunch break or if they close late enough, after work.

The fact that there is no entry fee is an added incentive to get down there.

I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

Regards.

Davej.

Ahoy Dave,
It could be here:
http://www.nmgw.ac.uk/nwms/dynamic/home_eng.php

How To Get There

Directions using Multimap

By Road

The Museum is located in Swansea's Maritime Quarter, and less than half a mile from the city centre.

From outside Swansea, exit the M4 at junction 42 westbound or junction 47 easbound, following the brown signs. The entrance to the Museum's large pay and display car park is a short walk from the Museum but there are dropping off/pick up points close to the entrance.

There are 6 designated coach parking points which must be booked in advance.

By Rail

The Museum is a 10 minute walk from Swansea Railway Station. Turn left down the High Street as far as Castle Square, then follow Princess Way to the traffic lights and across the pedestrian crossing to the Museum Park.

By Bus

Most bus services terminate at Swansea Quadrant Bus Station which is a 5 minute walk from the Museum

doors will be fully open to visitors from Tuesday 18 October 2005.
Opening hours will be from 10.00 to 1700 every day, except for a short Christmas break.

There is a lot to see and do at the Museum and we recommend that you allow at least a couple of hours for your visit.

Admission to the Museum is free of charge

Good Morning Ruud.Good Morning Ruud, Thanks for taking the time to provide me with the directions to the Swansea Maritime Museum.

I have no doubt that in the future you shall be instrumental in providing me with numerous snippets of information as you seem to be extremely active on the forum. I am sure that many other members are just as grateful to you as I am. Bon Voyage until we correspond again.

Ahoy Dave,
Thanks for those nice words, they are very appreciated by me; but as I've told you here before, untill less than 3 yrs, I didn't know anything about computers or internet, never touched a Pc untill then.I've learned to work with it on my own way, no lessons at all, just by trying,trying over and over again.Nowadays I know how to use the "search engins", so they help me a lot, and you have to be patience, if it don't show up the first time.And it gives you a nice feeling, by helping others out with their answers/problems, and yes I do have a huge amount of data/photos, which helps me also.
Bon voyage et merci.
Cordialement ruud

thank tyou for the info on the museum

Its nice to hear the museum is reopening again. We berthed alongside the piar there last year on the APPLEBY and at the pump house (now a pub) back in the 80s on the LOYAL MODERATOR (kept the gingers happy only 25 feet to the bar)

As i am only 55 miles away, I will look forward to going down there again and hopefully in time to view the museum.

i wonder if they still have the loom working and still make the jerseys there.

david

Hi, I have always been a regular visitor to Swansea Maritime Museum My wife and shop in Swansea once a week. The new Industrial Museum which replaced old one is a splendid building and My friend and I were there for the opening and we are both old sea dogs. The Maritime section is very small and few good exhibits. I would like to know were all the old Ship Models etc have gone, I hear they are in store somewhere. We found the Museum a poor relation of the Liverpool Maritime Museum were we also visit regularly. I hope the exhibits improve, last time I called in there were 7 visitors and about 12 staff.
