Building work has begun on the Vulcan Hotel at St Fagans


Visitors to St Fagans National Museum of History, the Art Fund Museum of the Year 2019, will now be able to see one of Cardiff’s best preserved Victorian pubs – the Vulcan Hotel - being re-erected on the site of the open air museum. Te building work is planned to take place over the next three years. Te Vulcan was built on Adam Street in Cardiff in 1853 to serve the mainly Irish community of what was then called New Town. During its long history it saw major changes as Cardiff grew to become an industrial powerhouse and then the nation’s capital, finally closing its doors for the last time in 2012. Amgueddfa Cymru’s historic building team then dismantled the famous Cardiff landmark brick by brick before moving it to St Fagans in 2012. For the past eight years, St Fagans has undergone a major £30 million redevelopment to become Wales’ National Museum of History, opening new galleries and workshop spaces and transforming its visitor experience with new buildings such as Bryn Eryr and Llys Llywelyn. Now that the redevelopment is complete, the historic buildings team on site have turned their attention to re-building the Vulcan at the Museum. Te Vulcan has received financial support from the

At this time, it had just undergone a major refurbishment that saw its distinctive green and brown tiles added to the frontage, as well as a redesign of its interior. “Our curators have already been out and about
