Families - St Fagans: National History Museum
Supporting the ‘Kids in Museum’s Manifesto’ and recently voted as one of the best free places to go in South East Wales by Netmums.com, St Fagans is a great day out for explorers of all ages.
Set in a mixture of beautiful open grounds and ancient woodland, the Museum has re-erected over 40 buildings that include Iron Age roundhouses, farms and a school-room to show you how Welsh families have lived, worked and played through the ages.
Meet friendly craftspeople such as the Clogmaker and Blacksmith and learn about weaving and milling flour.
Visitors love meeting our animal residents; we have cows and sheep roaming the Museum’s fields and you can see some ducks, hens or even piglets down on Llwyn-yr –Eos Farm.
There's plenty of open space for kids to run around and the Museum has a playground for 5-11 year olds.
If all that fresh-air has tired you out, catch a lift on our tractor ride and visit our indoor exhibitions where you can find out about family life in Wales and try on Victorian-style costumes.
Our restaurant sells children’s meals and lunchboxes or we have plenty of outdoor spaces for you to eat your own picnic.
Ask at the main entrance about our packed programme of fun events that include cookery demonstrations, re-enactments and hands-on art and craft activities.
Please note that unfortunately we cannot allow pram and pushchairs into the historic buildings.
