Visited in the summer and it was a lovely cheap day trip for my family. Perfect to bring a picnic and sit on the group and just enjoy the scenery.

Even though we were there on a rainy day it is a wonderful day out for the whole family. Its very educational and its so nice to see how the Welsh people used to live. Covers so many times of history. I particularly enjoyed the 19th and 20th century houses and lifestyles.

A favourite place of mine to visit for years. I never tire of the walks and places of interest here - the home made scones from the bakery are a must - wonderful to take friends at any time of year.

Museum is being redone at present when new galleries open it will showcase multiculturalism of South Wales in addition to Welsh history. There is plenty for children ( young and old) as well as many outdoor facilities.

We have visited St Fagans many times. It is a great place to take visitors. The staff are always happy to help. They have a vast knowledge and are always on hand if you need them. If you have problems walking long distances they have carts available with a guide that will take you around the
