1940s Swansea Bay
Swansea and the surrounding area was seen as a legitimate strategic target by the Germans during World War II, due to its importance as a port and docks and the nearby oil refinery. It was subjected to heavy and sustained bombing by the Luftwaffe over 3 nights in February 1941. 230 lives were lost and thousands lost their homes. This museum recreates what everyday life was like during this turbulent era of history.
