We were staying in Cardiff overnight and the receptionist at our hotel recommended this place. Whilst the day was dull and weather drizzly we were not disappointed. Firstly it is easy to find, parking cost just £4 for the day. If you had brought a picnic that is all you would have paid for the whole day's experience. Yes there... More

This open air 'museum' is more like a reality theme park, a walk back in time which will be enjoyed by lovers of history and social history but anyone really. The difference is that everything in it is authentic. There is a manor house, a village, a church or two, various rural dwellings that have been painstakingly taken apart from... More

You will walk from installation to installation so wear comfortable shoes and take time to enjoy the countryside in between installations. Be sure to have... More

Spent several hours here last weekend, and thought it was a fantastic place to visit, all the more so for having free entry (just £4 to park the car) Similar places we've been to in other parts of the UK have charged up to £20 per person! The museum consists of lots of historical buildings which have been relocated from... More
