    Founded in 1948, St Fagans is one of Wales’ most popular heritage attractions.

    Stephen Deuchar, Art Fund director and chair of the judges, said it was “a truly democratic museum” that “lives and breathes the culture, history and identity of Wales”.


     

    “It was made by the people of Wales for people everywhere,” he continued. “I can’t think of a single person who wouldn’t enjoy visiting this incredible place.”
