There's lots of great Welsh history to look at here. The restorations and reconstructions are very impressive. The site might have benefited from being slightly closer together to give it more of a village feel but the walks linking the buildings are quite pleasant. Could also do with a few more interactive exhibits for small children.

I go to St. Fagans every few months because it is just a wonderful place to wander. It can get very busy in the height of Summer but weekdays are perfect for adults who don't want to be crowded in the beautiful scenery. The people there are very friendly and always willing to share information about the buildings they are... More

Went with my parents during the autumn. It was really beautiful, and a nice step away from the hustle and bustle of Cardiff city centre. Really interesting to learn about Welsh culture too. I especially liked the houses which move through different time periods. Would recommend to all ages.
