Museum of Welsh Life

Established during the 1940s at St. Fagans, on the western edge of the city (Cardiff), the open-air Museum of Welsh Life was one of the first of its kind. Buildings from all over Wales, including workers' terraced cottages, farmhouses, a tollhouse, a row of stores, a chapel and an old schoolhouse have been carefully reconstructed within the 40 ha (100 acre) parklands, along with a recreated Celtic village. There is also a Tudor mansion which can be visited, boasting its own beautiful gardens on the grounds.
