National Slate Museum

Llanberis
Free to all

Situated in the Victorian workshops of the Dinorwig quarry, the National Slate Museum tells the story of life in Wales' slate communities.

The workshops are designed to look as though quarrymen and engineers have just put down their tools and left the courtyard for home.

Live demonstrations show how slate is split and dressed, while accompanying displays provide a revealing insight into the lives of the slate workers, from craftsmanship and community to strikes and industrial unrest.
