St Fagans Museum

ST FAGANS Museum of Welsh Life  Cardiff .jpg

St Fagans Museum,seems I have spent most of my life here! There is so much to see and do, you really need two days to walk around the museum which stands in the grounds of Saint Fagans castle, a late 16th century manor house. This open air museum is I believe the foremost tourist attraction in Wales.

The 100 acre museum has over 40 buildings taken from various areas of Wales, then re-erected at Saint Fagans. The buildings vary from a school, to shops, farmhouses, and chapels.

The grounds are really beautiful and peaceful, and it is hard to believe that you are so close to the City of Cardiff.

If you are driving to St Fagans, you will have to pay for parking, £6 per day. FREE for disabled badge holders and motorbikes. £30 yearly ticket in advance. This charge is for parking only – entry to the Museum remains free. If you’re driving to the Museum, the entrances from St Fagans village and the A4232 will be open.
