St Fagans National History Museum

St. Fagans
South Wales

St. Fagans: National History Museum is one of Europe's biggest and most exciting open-air museums. Centuries of Wales' tradition, culture, industry and costume are gathered together in a hundred acres of beautiful countryside. The Museum gives you the chance to travel from the Celtic village of 2,000 years ago to a miner's cottage of the 1980's.

Over forty buildings have been taken down stone-by-stone and rebuilt here at St. Fagans to recreate Welsh daily life throughout history.

Step back into the past: to the primitive Celtic village; to the bustle of a pre-war grocery; a 19th century farmyard, complete with animals; the chill of a Victorian schoolroom; all these and a 20th century children's playground add up to one of the best days' time-travelling you can find.

Festivals, theatre performances, storytelling, craft demonstrations and special events - there's always something new (and old) to find at St. Fagans: National History Museum.
