St Fagan’s Museum

St. Fagan’s National History Museum near Cardiff. It shows you around from the beginning of Celtic settlements to more modern times. Incredible journey through history, illustrated with original relics, fruit of the earth and even animals. It is best to go there when the weather is fine, as it is an open air museum.

I went to St. Fagan’s with my friends. We were lucky it did not rain, we could walk the paths having a look into every nook and cranny. And there are plenty of those!

It was there that I found out that two chimneys was a sign of wealthier owners:

Also, the old white houses are cosy, although very small and dark inside:

The houses are different inside, depending on the times they were built, but there is always a hearth in the centre of the family life:

The old photography studio does not take pictures any more. Pity!


The photo studio is in a building just next to Gwalia Stores:

You may also find an old southgate tollhouse from Aberystwyth:

As we are near white walls, it is worth mentioning the white exterior of St. Teilo’s Church:

The church is very colourful inside:

The school comes from Maestir, near Lampeter:

It is impossible to show and describe it all. We spent the whole day at St. Fagan’s. We ate icecream, drank coffee. We breathed in the history with the air. Bliss…
