St Fagans located a short bus ride from Cardiff is an open air museum featuring buildings from around Wales. Other than the transport costs it’s free.

On a nice day it is a nice way to spend a pleasant two hours.

Wandering around the various constructions from Celtic farms to a home of the ‘future’.

The architecture is interesting, some have information blurbs explaining the significance while others have very limited content.

One of the better parts of the complex is a museum housing a number of collections relating to Welsh life. While it didn’t help me understand the political issues in the country I did feel like I came away with a somewhat better appreciation of the culture. I just wish I had more time to read up on the displays.

If you have a spare 3 hours (round trip) and good weather a trip to St Fagans would be worthwhile.
