This was recommended by a friend to us so we decided to go for the day. We knew we had to pay for parking but with free entry to the museum. It kind of has 2 parts, the first is to see all the historic buildings/materials/trades etc that wales had over various time scales. People are on hand for you... More

great museum with interesting exhibitions of buildings through Welsh history. Loved the school house and the 1950's pre-fab. Parking expensive at 3.50 as it is just a field.

I don't get how anybody would give this less than 5 stars. The park is brilliant. They have captured the atmosphere of every building. The grounds around the castle are beautiful. Easily this is on a par with similar attractions with a big entry price like Bunratty castle. It's amazing that this is free entry with just £3.50 per car... More

If you are in the Cardiff area and would like to go out for the day, I would recommend St. Fagan's. It's really easy to get to and completely free to get in. The grounds are huge and you need a full day to visit everything. There are lockers to rent for your bags, which I'd recommend as there's lots... More

Free of charge and a fantastic day out for children and adults, the buildings have been rebuilt to perfection and the main house is amazing, you can walk for miles and the restaurant is really good value.

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
