I and hubby visited with few of our friends. It was an awesome place to visit. We enjoyed every moment. But it was huge place and took lot of our time. We enjoyed looking at the British heritage. Overall experience was great!

Have visited St Fagans 6-8 times now with friends. A beautifully laid out piece of Wales and Welsh history. Friendly and Knowledgeable staff, usually something new or different to discover and always a joy to see a new site where an old building has been painstakingly rebuilt. Great bread and cakes and a 'fairly' authentic cawl served in the cafe... More

You only pay for parking but if you get there late you could be in a field apart from disable drivers plenty outside the museum entrance, entry to the Museum is free. The site is wheel chair friendly, on site cafe's & gift shop. lots of walking to do overall good day out.

St Fagans is an absolute gem and anybody visiting the Cardiff area should take a trip here! Staff are friendly and helpful! Always buy a gingerbread bear from the bakery, since the age of 2! Brilliant historical museum of life, but also a lovely general day out and walk!

Nice place to visit both in summer for the gardens and around the year for the museum. Have visited a number of times and always found something new. Always nice and festive around Christmas.

Welsh friend recommended this to me. Amazing, spend as long as you like here. Plenty to see and do for all ages. Fascinating and FREE. Well done to all involved. More than worth the car park fee

This folk museum has got to be one of the best in the world, the medieval church rebuilt and placed in the museum grounds is truly remarkable

So a friend asked if i'd like to go to the national history museum i was sceptical at first but decided to go anyway. First plus was it's free to enter, there is a charge for the carpark of £3.50 but i think this is reasonable because of the free entry. From there it only got better the museum houses... More
