Chronicling the historical lifestyle, culture, and architecture of the Welsh people, St Fagans National Museum of History consists of more than 40 recreated buildings taken from various locations in Wales. Located on the grounds of an Elizabethan manor house, this open-air museum welcomed its first visitors in 1948. The site, modeled after an outdoor museum situated in Stockholm, includes a Unitarian chapel, village schoolhouse, tollbooth, pigsty, and tannery. Holding permanent displays of traditional crafts, the museum also features a working blacksmith’s forge, pottery shop, mill, and clog maker’s shop. Drop by the site’s small farm, which concentrates on preserving native breeds of livestock, to peruse the fresh produce available for sale.

Fantastic place to visit. Amazing houses, history all located within a beautiful location. The site is large but easy to navigate between houses, with good accessibility. On hand guides at each of the houses are knowledgeable and happy to talk. Two on site restaurants and a tea room, but plenty of green spaces on site with picnic benches so easy to bring a picnic or tailor the trip to suit your budget. A great place for an entire family as has everything for all generations.
Brilliant place to visit. Free entrance but £6 car park charge. Depending which way you travel, if you go over a train crossing turn immediately left ( right before crossing if from other direction). Don’t bother going into the castle as only 2 rooms are open to view. The day we went it was raining but that didn’t put us off. Lots to see & do. If you like old fashioned sweets I recommend that you go to the shop that sells bread, £1.40 per 100g , limited selection there though compared if you went to the main sweet shop that charged £2 for 100g. Friendly & helpful staff. The galleries were good. I would definitely visit again if in the area
