St. Fagans National Museum of History is an open–air museum based in south Wales.

The museum is located within the grounds of St. Fagans Castle and Gardens, a late-16th-century manor house that the Earl of Plymouth donated to the people of Wales in 1948.

At the museum, you can explore more than 50 historical buildings relocated from all over Wales, including a Victorian school, a mediaeval church, and the workmen’s institute.

See the Victorian school, Llys Llywelyn, a mediaeval prince’s hall, or stop off at the 1920s Gwalia Stores to buy some traditional Welsh food.
