I'm no expert on Dylan Thomas but very much enjoyed this well presented exhibition of his life and writing. Some great interactive exhibits help you understand how he worked. We dawdled for a couple of hours, virtually unheard of for us.

Been to Swansea many times but never had the chance to visit the Dylan Thomas Centre. Really glad we made the effort this time though, really worthwhile. Informative and well laid out.

Visited the Dylan Thomas museum with the kids, even though its small, it is packed with interesting things to see and explore, especially those loving Dylan Thomas' work.
