National Slate Museum
Free to all
indicates offers with National Art Pass
Situated in the Victorian workshops of the Dinorwig quarry, the 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.
The more you see, the more we do.
The National Art Pass lets you enjoy free entry to hundreds of museums, galleries and historic places across the UK, while raising money to support them.
