    St Fagans National History Museum 

    A walk around Wales - from Celtic times to the present day. St Fagans is one of Europe's leading open-air museums and Wales's most popular heritage attraction.

    Open to the public since 1 November 1948, the museum stands in the grounds of the magnificent St Fagans Castle and gardens, a late 16th-century manor house donated to the people of Wales by the Earl of Plymouth.

    During the last fifty years over forty original buildings from different historical periods have been re-erected in the 100-acre parkland, among them houses, a farm, a school, a chapel and a splendid Workmen's Institute.

    Traditional crafts and activities bring St Fagans alive, in workshops where craftsmen still demonstrate their traditional skills. Their produce is usually on sale. Read more stories about our collections on our Rhagor website.
