Visitor Information

Redevelopment Project - Business as Usual!

The historic re-erected buildings in the open-air Museum are open as usual but the indoor galleries are currently closed as we build new galleries. We've also said goodbye to our Celtic Village to make way for a new gallery.

St Fagans National History Museum has received funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and the Welsh Government to completely transform the visitor experience. Over the next five years, developments include a new entrance hall and visitor facilities, new gallery spaces and historic buildings including an Iron Age farm and a medieval Welsh prince’s hall.
