Film Showings at Swansea Museum

Swansea Museum embraces modern media improving the visitor experience. As part of Swansea Museum’s exhibitions and events programme, the Museum will be showing films regularly, adding a new dimension, and ensuring that visitors are really captivated by the topics and subjects explored within its exhibitions.

Showing films which are connected to the exhibits really allow for a more in depth understanding, and allow members of the public to really explore the topics which are covered in the exhibitions from that particular era.

The first series of films focus on Swansea Museum’s WW1 exhibition, Swansea and the Great War. Including exciting films such as Dr Zhivago, My Boy Jack, Warhorse and Birdsong, just to name a few.
