Exploring the metal workings at St Fagans

Join the Metals Group at St Fagans National Museum of History for our annual AGM. St Fagans is part of Amgueddfa Cymru: National Museum Wales and is an open air museum with approximately 50 historic buildings, a few original to the site, but most brought from across Wales and re-erected here. As well as the buildings that are displayed using original period objects from the national collections and a couple of buildings that are working mills, the museum also has three recently opened galleries to explore all within the hundred acre site. Refreshments and lunch are included in the ticket price.
