The South Wales valleys are full of history and we are so lucky to have a lot of places near us that can tell us our history.
One of my favourites is the National Museum of Welsh Life in St Fagans near Cardiff.
It is just so beautiful. Seeing the old buildings as you walk around.
Like this old pig sty.
Or this water mill
There’s even a school room where school groups can dress up as Victorian schoolchildren and experience school life with quills and ink pots. They even have Victorian era toys to play with on the yard outside.
If you’ve got time it’s also well worth visiting the olde worlde shops.
The visitor centre itself has recently had a facelift and it looks incredible. It’s a must on our half term to-do list.
