National Slate Museum

Slate QuarryAs you travel through the museum, you’ll be transported into the past, with the quarry being designed as if the engineers have just put down their tools for a lunch break. Talks and demonstrations including slate-splitting give a real insight into quarry life.

When the museum opened in 1972, many of the sites former workers were employed to present their craft so the museum really is a true representation of what life entailed.
