St Fagans National History Museum sticks in children's memories long after the visit. It's so well put together that kids don't even realise they're learning.

At St Fagan's National History Museum you don't read about history, you see it. The museum consists of re-erected buildings from throughout Welsh history. The museum is set in the grounds of the 16th-century manor house St Fagans Castle, and includes a re-erected farm, school, chapel, as well as several houses, workshops and shops. See people wearing traditional clothing, workmen demonstrating traditional skills and farming tasks, native livestock breeds, and sample traditional food and drink at the "village" bakery. This museum is serious fun for all ages, and incredibly it's completely free to visit.
