‘Love the Words’ Exhibition
*Update for our customers – Welcome back, we’ve missed you!!*
Our temporary opening hours are 10am to 4pm on Wednesdays through to Sunday. You won’t need to book a slot to visit, but we will be monitoring numbers on site to ensure that there’s plenty of space for people to physically distance from each other. Please call us if you’re a large group and we can advise further.
Our permanent Dylan Thomas exhibition, ‘Love the Words’, opened on Dylan’s 100th birthday, 27 October 2014, thanks to funding from Heritage Lottery Fund and Swansea Council.
Explore the interactive displays, listen to recordings and view the different objects on display to gain an insight into the work, life, and cultural context of one of the twentieth century’s most significant writers. The exhibition is family friendly, free, and open Tuesday to Sunday.
The exhibition comprises a main room, a temporary exhibition area which houses changing displays, and a learning space which is open to the public when not in use for workshops.
There’s lots to explore on the interactive Timeline, such as the Children’s Trail which features some of the animals that appear in Dylan’s writing.
Follow the People Trail around the Timeline, too, and discover some of the key people in Dylan’s life, and the rich cultural context in which he lived and worked.
One section in the centre of the exhibition is dedicated to Dylan the writer, and another to Dylan the performer.
There are fun interactives, and touchscreens which tell the story of Dylan’s Notebooks, explore his famous poem ‘Do not go gentle into that good night’ and look at the circumstances surrounding his death.
Listen to Dylan himself, and those who knew him, via the built-in speakers in the chairs.
Come along and ‘Love the Words’!
