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.

There are also galleries with exhibitions of costume, daily life and farming implements. Special exhibitions are also held regularly. The galleries now include the exciting and innovative Oriel 1 space, with changing exhibitions exploring life and identity in today's Wales.
