National Slate Museum

Bringing the story of the industry that once 'roofed the world' to life. The museum vividly recreates the story of the Welsh Slate Industry. Set in the original quarry workshops, the museum lets you discover how people lived and worked in the slate quarrying communities of Wales in the past. Giant waterwheel and restored quarry steam locomotive. The museum is sited in the Victorian workshops built in the shadow of Elidir mountain, site of the vast Dinorwig quarry. Here you can travel into the past of an industry and a way of life that has chiselled itself into the very being of this country. The workshops and buildings are designed as though quarrymen and engineers have just put down their tools and left the courtyard for home.
