70-year-old Brian Jones has been hoping to return to St Fagan's, where he used to work, to see a building that was being renovated in 2005.
St Fagans Museum will soon benefit from the biggest grant award in Wales, from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The Victorian railway station from Raglan in Monmouthshire, has been officially handed over from Monmouthshire County Council to St Fagans: National History Museum, where it will be an exhibit. The station was constructed in 1876, but has been closed for many years.
The St Fagans National History museum has been awarded an £11.5 million grant to help redevelop the site. It's the largest amount of funding the heritage lottery fund has ever awarded in Wales.
The money will be used to develop new galleries and activities.
