There was more here than I expected and what was here was really interesting. They were doing construction work on some new areas and the galleries so we missed a few bits but that didn't really spoil the day. The museum is very spread out so there is a fair amount of walking but most of it is on level... More

I love taking all my friends and family here from out of town, they love the fact that you can walk around all these old houses, and see how people used to live! It's a shame that the Christmas evening event didn't happen last year! We love that, even though it can be a bit wet and muddy! It adds... More

I think this is an amazing place plus it is free. I went with a friend and we took a picnic. The gardens are just beautiful. The old houses are brilliant. A must do

A nice day out. Very pretty place. The gardens were so well kept and very beautiful. The only shame was that it wasn't really sunny when we went.

Our kids were perhaps too young for this kind of attraction but we still managed to have a good time with them looking around the old historical buildings and eating baked potatoes and gingerbread...

The care and consideration that has gone into every historic building in this folk museum will take you right back to any part of Welsh vernacular history. There a regular new additions and it takes a good day to get round it all. My own particular joy is to don a long skirt and and old shawl, and carry a... More
