This captivating open-air museum stands in the grounds of the St Fagans Castle and Gardens, just outside Cardiff.

Over 40 original buildings from different historical periods have been re-erected, including farmhouses, a school and a grand mediaeval church. Traditional craftsmen including the clogmaker and blacksmith are on hand to demonstrate their traditional skills.

The museum repoened in Autumn 2018 following an ambitious £30 million redevelopment, which has transformed St Fagans into a national museum of history for Wales, allowing visitors to follow the story of the Welsh people from pre-history to today.
