I think it depends on the concept and how it is run. If they have a good children's area, and they have space for temporal exhibitions, it could do ok. It is a nice building, and I am sure they can attract people, it would depend how they complement the military medicine exhibition.

I think the merits / why’s and how’s have been done to death for this building. At the end of the day, as long as it’s not having a direct cost impact for Cardiff Council to have, I don’t see why it shouldn’t exist?

It’s a beautiful building, with a yes admittedly niche topic - but I’m sure the space will be opened up for multiple uses and exhibitions and provide more of the type of architecture that Cardiff really ought to be aspiring toward.

So yes, I’m for it - certainly from an architectural perspective if nothing else.

A £30m military medicine museum planned for Cardiff Bay hopes to become the first in the UK to offer a super-high definition 8K immersive video space.

The technology, called Deep Space, will offer 2D and 3D visuals, exploring science, medicine, art and history.

The project would see the Museum of Military Medicine (MMM) move from Keogh Barracks to Cardiff Bay in 2022.

Alongside exhibitions and "immersive" visitor experiences, the visual room could also be used to train doctors.

The new four-storey building would be built in Harbour Way, near the Norwegian Church. It is on the site of an old visitor centre, known as "the Tube"....

...It would be only the second time the Deep Space technology has ever been used - it was pioneered by the Museum of the Future in the city of Linz, Austria.

That actually sounds promising. Maybe this museum is worth having after all! Certainly if it can offer something unique in the UK, it'll be more likely to attract visitors and become a success.
