Looking at the reviews of St. Fagans we were determined to go there and saved the trip for our last day in Wales. We were expecting to be wowed and we were underwhelmed by St. Fagans. There are various old buildings to look at as well as a Castle where we looked around inside. Animals roamed free on the grounds... More

We visited this wonderful place last weekend. A bonus was a very large Vintage Car Show. Great cars of our past. The buildings were a memory of days gone by. The pre fab house reminded us of our childhood with great aunts who lived there. Good prises for drinks lots of drink stops all around as a very hot day.... More

You will not find a better trip out for free than this museum. £3 return on the bus and optional 30p for a map, well worth a visit.

A wonderful place to spend the day, for the history or just for a lovely country walk . Highly recommended. Read more on our blog World Travel Family, nomadic expat Welsh Mum travelling the world with the kids, seeking awesomeness around the world. We wrote a post about St Fagans, relly enjoyed it.

We have taken people there many times and we still enjoy it. there is so much to see of Welsh traditional buildings and culture in a large park with good facilities. being a museum... More

This was a day out with a difference for the grandkids. The usual moans and groans from them about going to look at "old" things etc etc. Different story when we got there though. Excellent layout of the site. Very easy to get around. Vast amount of buildings that are all fully on show interior and exterior. All fitted out... More

What a great day out - interesting buildings, beautiful gardens. And so impressed that it is free, you pay a fortune for similar places elsewhere. Great for all the family. Will definitely visit again.

Luckily it was a sunny day when we visited. I wouldn't advise visiting in the rain. We spent over three hours there but only covered about half the site, the open air village half of the site. It is very impressive, and everything has been done to make it as authentic as possible. The row of terrace cottages through the... More
