St Fagans National History Museum
Set in the stunning grounds of a 400-year old castle on the outskirts of Cardiff, St Fagans National History Museum is one of the world's best open-air museums. The Museum is home to over forty original historic buildings that have been moved from different parts of the county to tell the stories of how the peoples of Wales have lived, worked and enjoyed themselves through the ages. The Museum includes a medieval church, farmhouses and Victorian schoolroom and a working bakery, blacksmith, corn mill, woollen mill and clogmaker's workshop. The Museum's 1930's style Gwalia Tearooms, the Castle Buttery and a Cafe in an old pottery all serve a good old fashioned cup of tea and traditional ‘Bara brith' (a Welsh fruit cake). St Fagans is currently undergoing a huge transformation with new galleries and even more historic buildings in the pipeline. Look out for the Museum's specialist builders working on building a Medieval Princes' Hall and an Iron Age Farm. The Museum is one of the UK's top ten free attractions as voted by users of TripAdvisor.
