Swansea Museum

Visitors to Swansea Museum can move around in time and space while exploring the life of one of the city's best-known hospitals.

Cefn Coed Remembered uses memorabilia, an immersive 're-living room' and audio-visual technology to bring the hospital's fascinating 87-year history to vivid life.

Built in 1932, the hospital was based on an older, Victorian design and, while not a listed building, it is one of the last remaining mental health hospitals of its era in the UK.

Gradually services have been transferred to modern purpose-built facilities more suitable for 21st century mental health care and care in the community as the building has been decommissioned.

Vintage equipment from the hospital - including the earliest folding wheelchair ever produced - are on display, together with photographs from a hospital walking tour which took place last summer.

The exhibition also includes a 3D printed model of the hospital and interactive touch screen model, and a timeline of the very first patients who were cared for there.

Spoken histories, from hours and hours of conversations with people who worked in the hospital, have been incorporated into the exhibition
