In 2012 the Heritage Lottery Fund awarded £11.5 million to St Fagans National History Museum. This is the largest grant ever awarded by the HLF in Wales. The money will go towards Making History, the exciting £25.5 million project to transform this much-loved museum.
The plan is to create:
• A striking entrance to welcome you to St Fagans
• Activity and event spaces, an auditorium and better facilities for schools
• A dedicated research space where you can study our collections
• A cafe with views across the site, and access to a new play area.
On the site there will also be a brand new ecofriendly building with facilities for craft workshops and open-air performances. You won't have to wait until the building is finished to see what's going on - look out for open days when you will be able to meet the building team and see the progress so far.
