This outdoor museum is large & very extensive. It shows all aspects of Welsh life from 100s of years ago until just recently. We saw several school groups while we were there. If you want to know how the people of Wales lived in the past, come here! It also has free admission.

Ensure you wear your walking shoes as it is a fair way to walk around all the outdoor exhibits and the house and gardens. Particularly liked the grocery store and the row of miners cottages through the various ages. Good idea to take a packed lunch as you can easily spend all day here and the onsite restaurants are not... More

Really great day out for all the family. Lovely to see all the old houses which had been lovelingly moved and restored. Had afternoon tea as a treat, loved the cobblers and Victorian shops.

Great place to visit and like all museums in Wales - Free entrance. The site is very well signed with lots of different building to see to wander around. There is a lot of active construction taking place which shows that St Fagans is growing for the future, a return visit is a must next year. Our favourite building was... More

I went there with family on a mobility scooter and can recommend it from a disabled aspect as well. I loved the terrace of houses decorated from different eras. The whole area was good fun. Although it is free the car park isn't and the refreshments are a tad expensive

Great day out. Staff are all friendly and informative. Guy in the photography shop did a brilliant job too. However they've closed my favourite attraction (The house of the future?) which is now the shop and they didn't have any fresh bread left :(

An excellent day out, experiencing the Welsh way of life in bygone days, which my granddaughter thoroughly enjoyed. Plenty to do and see, old fashioned sweets sold in paper bags and a visit to the bakery is a must. All this and free entry too, a definite must do.

When a welsh friend suggested that we take an afternoon to go to see some reconstructed houses, I was interested but could not have predicted just how cool this place would be. This is truly an attraction for the whole family and can be appreciated by anyone of any age. If you find yourself in Cardiff or are looking for... More
