One of the best museums I have been to. Take your walking shoes. There's a lot to see. Enough to do for children.

I have very fond memories of St Fagans as a child on school trips, with the family and with photography class. Perfect for anyone wanting a chilled, interesting day out, with family or friends.

Took our son to St Fagans during School Xmas Holiday. Always had things to do with fun no matter it's in Summer or Winter.

This place gets better and better. The Llewellyn section is nearing completion and looks a great addition to this museum. The Vulcan's foundations are settling in so with luck there will be a working pub on site, in the interests of historical ales of course.

Lovely place to educate your children on history. Great day out if your looking to do things around the South Wales area. You only need to pay for parking.
