The collections, which have been built up over the past 150 years, contain all kinds of objects from an Egyptian mummy and a Roman milestone to an Ichthyosaur skeleton, a rare locally-made porcelain teapot, local photographs and paintings and a Welsh kitchen. It is a fascinating treasure house of Swansea's past history. The Museum building was completed in 1841. The significance of the museum to the town at that time is shown by the grand style of its' Neo-Classical architecture. The imposing symmetrical facade, the pillared portico over the front door, and the Egyptian influenced windows and doors make it architecturally significant, and it has been listed as a Grade 2 Building. Swansea Museum is the oldest in Wales. It was opened in 1841 by a group of local people who were known as The Royal Institution of South Wales, which gave the Museum building its original name.
