St Fagans National History Museum

Commonly referred to as St Fagans after St Fagans Village, where it is located, it is an open-air museum where you will find centuries of Wales’ social history gathered together in 100 acres of beautiful countryside, situated in the grounds of the magnificent St Fagans Castle and gardens, a late 16th-century manor house.
Explore over forty original buildings from different historical periods which have been re-erected in the 100-acre parkland, among them houses, a farm, a school, a chapel, a pub, a splendid Workmen's Institute and other historic buildings. Experience one of the live workshops where craftsmen still demonstrate their traditional skills with a working blacksmith forge, pottery, weaver, miller and clog maker.  Part of St Fagans Museum includes a small working farm that preserves local Welsh native breeds.
