Fantastic museum of Welsh life
May 2021 • Friends
Took the family last weekend and everyone was completely blown away. I haven’t been for years and forgot just how good it was. We walked around for about 5 hours and loved exploring all of the buildings and shops. The lake was absolutely stunning. It just went on and on. We had a picnic and spent far too much in all the shops. Definitely the best national museum I have been too - well any museum for that matter. Such a lovely day and a great covid friendly activity as pretty much all of it was outside. So lucky when places like this are completely free (with a £6 fee to park). Awesome day out for young and old alike.

Great outdoor museum
Apr 2021 • Couples
This is a great outdoor museum and great history. There is so much to see and do. Great day out for all. The staff were freindly. Free to enter and only parking. Fish and chips were great to. Will visit again.

Only car drivers can get a ticket
Jun 2021
I'm sure this would be a good experience if I could get in.
Unfortunately I'm a visitor to wales and only have a day available to visit on my bike. I'd understand if there were no tickets left available however there are tickets available on the website for visitors with cars but not cycles.

Brilliant morning out, big car park with lots of disabled spaces, wasn't sure what to expect but really glad we visited. Only thing that would improve our day is if COVID wasn't limiting the interactive parts.

Excellent Day Out
May 2021 • Family
It’s hard to believe that it’s completely free to come here! I hadn’t been for years and my children had never been and we had an absolutely fantastic day. Loads to see, lots of walking but plenty of benches, picnic tables etc. The thing that really stood out were the staff, every staff member was friendly and helpful, even stopping to speak and offer tips as you walked passed.
The only suggestion would be on such a hot day, more places to pick up a drink would be handy, there was no where over in the castle area to get a drink and a long way to walk back with children, also disappointing that no hot food was being served in the main cafe. Even with that said I would highly recommended visiting as a really great day out.

Excellent place minus the Welsh propaganda!
May 2021 • Family
We visited on St Davids day as this place is a museum of the Welsh heritage. Everything is beautifully set up, a lot to see and do, a lot to entertain the children. Dogs are also allowed. Wonderful place truly! The exhibits are absolutely spectacular! Until you get to the gallery with the Welsh propaganda, not good! This is a museum not a political platform hence the 3 stars. Seeing that and having my children ask us what they mean put us right off. No need for it in a museum, there is place and time for this kind of thing.

Historical Gem but customer service lacking
May 2021 • Couples
A great historical gem in Wales - loved the prefab! However, as you enter the site, it is like walking into an airport terminal and it is unclear which way to head. A few people were being bellowed at by unfriendly staff for walking in the wrong direction and this isn’t surprising as there are no clear this way signs. Good customer service goes a long way and a few meet and greet staff would have been great. The site itself is beautiful and well worth the walk around - lots to see and do for all ages.
