The Maritime Quarter's flagship attraction is the National Waterfront Museum, housed in a 1901 dockside warehouse with a striking glass and slate extension. The 15 hands-on galleries explore Wales' industrial history and the impact of industrialisation on its people from 1750 to the present day, making much use of interactive computer screens and audiovisual presentations. The effect can be a bit overwhelming but there is enough interesting stuff here to occupy several hours.

The museum's Waterfront Cafe has outside seats on the quay and is good for coffee and snacks.
