St. Fagans National History Museum
This open-air museum located in St Fagans chronicles the historical lifestyle, architecture and cultural heritage of the people of Wales, and is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the country. The 16th-century manor house in which the museum stands bears testament to the magnificent heritage of the Welsh, and the museum features more than 40 original buildings, moved from various parts of Wales and erected to show how the people of Wales have lived over the last 500 years. Among these are houses, a farm, a school, a chapel and a splendid Workmen's Institute. Donated to the Welsh by the Earl of Plymouth, the museum first opened in 1948 and to this day, the original strain of native livestock can be seen in the fields and farmyards, and strains of Welsh language proudly heard in the air.
