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 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.
The play area is now closed for the winter. However, the small tractors have been relocated to Cilewent Yard [building 42 on the map]
Our historic buildings are, by their very nature, small and old. The limited space available in these buildings means that we are unable to admit pushchairs or prams. We kindly ask that you leave these outside of the buildings. Pushchairs and prams are permitted inside the larger buildings of Oakdale, St Teilo’s Church and Gwalia Stores.
Food and Drink
We pride ourselves in providing good, quality food which is cooked on site using local, Welsh products whenever possible.
Delicious additive-free, farm made Welsh ice cream and sorbets by Mary's Farmhouse are available within the Museum. These can be purchased at various locations around the site.
High-chairs are available at all outlets.
Baby changing facilities.
Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
Why not consider hosting your child's birthday celebration here at St Fagans? There's plenty of entertainment to keep them amused for hours. The catering can be taken care of with a selection of hot or cold meals, puddings and drinks.
