The rich heritage and culture of Wales is celebrated in this open-air museum. It's set in 100 acres of parkland in the grounds of St Fagans Castle. Over 40 original buildings from different historical periods have been re-erected here. They include a farm, school, chapel and working mens institute. There's even a row of terraced cottages.
This walk around Welsh history, from Celtic times to the present day, offers a celebration of life and work in Wales. You can see traditional crafts and theres a working farm with native breeds of livestock. The museum celebrates traditional music and dance with regular events. To make the most of the day wear comfortable shoes and bring a picnic.
