Swansea Museum is the oldest museum in Wales, and a fascinating treasure house of Swansea’s past history. The collections contain all kinds of objects from the past of Swansea, Wales and the rest of the world.
You are able to visit Swansea Museum at four locations – the Museum itself on Oystermouth Road, the Tramshed in Dylan Thomas Square in the Marina, the Museum Stores in Landore and the floating exhibits in the dock by the Tramshed.

Parking at Swansea Museum
At the front of the museum we have spaces for four visitor’s cars. (free)
At the back of the museum there are five spaces for cars for visitors.
This is a gated car park and is open from 9:00 till 16:15. (free)
There are four to five spaces across the road at the front of the museum with a 2 hour no return limit. (free)
At the side of the museum, just outside our back car park, there are two to three disabled spaces. (free)
The nearest car park is northwest of the museum, across the A4067 on York Street – the City Gates NCP car park. (248 spaces) (£3.00 for 2 hours)
The next closest is to the East of the museum – East Burrows Road car park. (230 spaces, although this is reduced at the moment due to ongoing construction) (£2.40 for 2 hours)
The main museum building benefits from flat access from rear and side with disabled parking spaces at rear, thus allowing full access to all levels and galleries via the lift.
