St Fagans National Museum of History

In an effort to connect modern times with the past, over forty buildings from different historical periods have been re-built and restored in the 100-acre parkland. These buildings include houses, a school, a chapel and a Workmen’s Institute. Visitors can be immersed in Welsh culture as they witness craftsmen perform traditional skills. These creations are also for sale. There is also a farm, which houses traditional working animals, and the wider parkland that acts as a sanctuary for bats, birds and rare animals. You could easily spend a whole day here.
