Details

The new Dylan Thomas Exhibition opened on the 27 October 2014, Dylan’s 100th birthday. It’s all thanks to funding of £935,700 from the Heritage Lottery Fund which means we’ve been able to refurbish and expand our exhibition giving you a greater insight into one of Swansea’s leading cultural figures.

You can hear some of the world’s most well-known voices reading lines from famous Dylan Thomas works; the voices of Prince Charles and Richard Burton are among those to feature. Also included are new interactive touch-screen displays that focus on Dylan’s technique, explore the notebooks he wrote in Swansea between the ages of 15 and 19, and cast a light on the circumstances surrounding his death in New York City in 1953.

Other features of the refurbished exhibition include an interactive, 3D timeline exploring Dylan’s life and work; an interactive trail for children; and a deconstructed shed installation that focuses on Dylan the writer by exploring his methods of composition and his creative relationships.
