Friends of Swansea Museum

The Royal Institution of South Wales acts as the Friends of Swansea Museum, supporting events and purchasing objects. 

Recent aquisitions have included the 1852 South Dock painting, Swansea ceramics and a photographic glass plate by Calvert Richard Jones showing Mumbles in 1850.

The R.I.S.W. was founded in 1835 as a philosophical and literary society, and in 1841 it opened Swansea Museum which it ran for over 100 years.
