St Fagans National Museum of History was recently announced as Art Fund Museum of the Year 2019 - the most prestigious museum prize in the world.

In October 2018, St Fagans National Museum of History completed the biggest redevelopment project in the history of the Museum. This was made possible by funding from The National Lottery Heritage Fund, Welsh Government and other supporters. St Fagans was awarded the largest grant ever given by The National Lottery Heritage Fund in Wales in 2012 to help tell the stories of life in Wales over 200,000 years and more.

A full programme of activities will be published on the Museum’s website in the lead up to the event.
