Industrial displays

A 19th century "sociable bicycle", a rare 1904 motor car, a complete steel mill and the world's first steam locomotive are all part of a historic collection of industrial heritage about to open at the new National Waterfront Museum in Swansea. Representing the treasures of Wales's history as an industrial nation, the objects will be housed in the pound;31 million development, which opens on October 18. Finishing touches are being put to more than 100 audiovisual exhibits including 36 state-of-the-art interactive displays. Tel: 01792 459640. Opening hours are from 10am-5pm every day.
