Wartime Museum in Swansea with a 1940s theme and World War One memorial trench display.

 

Discover for yourself what life was like for civilians on the Home Front during WWII. Experience the sights and sounds of an air raid. See how people lived at that time and find out what you could eat with a weeks rations!

 

Step back in time to the early 1940s - Most people have heard of the London Blitz, but the ports and industrial towns of South Wales were also targets for the German Luftwaffe. 1940s Swansea Bay tells the story of the impact of the bombing raids on the area, and how the local people managed to cope with the devastation.

 

Follow the course of the bombers in the RAF plotting room before taking cover in the air raid shelter! Then, when the all clear sounds, stroll down the reconstructed street, past houses, shops and into the corner pub. Short films and displays of actual material from the period help bring to life a time over 75 years ago when everyone had to carry a gas mask and identity card. Could you survive on a typical weeks rations?

 

We look forward to your visit!
