It amazes me how the buildings had been carefully dismantled from their home---brick by brick--and taken some distance to be re-erected at Saint Fagans. There is so much to see and the history of Wales comes alive. There are plenty of indoor exhibits too showing everything from farm machinery to the formation of the shires and the many fights the...

St Fagans is free to go in and the houses are well worth visiting, very interesting. There are other buildings there to visit which is also good. You can also throw a pot and have plenty of things to do. Well worth a visit.

The buildings were interesting in places, but I found information lacking. I also agree that staff could be more welcoming with only one speaking at all and that was to tell me to drink my coffee outside - I'm an adult and it had a lid and I can drink without spilling! There was a little fairground which was meant... More

A well set out outdoor museum giving a taste of what living in Wales would have been like in days ago.

Excellent and well worth a visit. I love this place! Have visited many times and will visit again. My favourite buildings are the terraced houses that go through the decades where you can see the developments that took place over the years. Some fabulous examples if our heritage. A must visit for all.
