This pavilion, set within the 19th century woodland landscape of St Fagans open air museum, acts as a focal point for visitors and draws more people further into the museum park, in its location at a key crossing-point of paths on the site. It celebrates the culture, heritage and skills of Welsh craft in a new gallery, workshop and visitor hub, providing flexible workshop and demonstration spaces for over 500 items from the craft and archaeology collections of the National Museum of History. The generous layout and provision of spaces internally, coupled with large clear span openings, serve the building user and visitor well.
