Please note that there is no longer a children's play area at the 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, 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 original historic buildings 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 ducks, hens or even piglets down on Llwyn-yr–Eos Farm.

There's plenty of open space to run around and explore and if all that fresh air has tired you out, catch a lift on our tractor ride and visit our restaurant, which 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, unfortunately we aren't able to allow prams and pushchairs into the historic buildings.

Food and Drink

Cafe Bardi is situated in the main entrance and serves a variety of home-made cakes, sandwiches, boxed salads and soup and hot and cold drinks. Gwalia Tea Rooms is a traditional 1930s tea room serving light lunches and afternoon teas.

Delicious additive-free, farm made Welsh ice cream and sorbets by Mary's Farmhouse are available within the Museum. These can be purchased at the Vale Restaurant, Cafe Bardi and at various locations around the site.

High-chairs are available at all outlets.
