National Slate Museum

The National Slate 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, while an array of Talks and Demonstrations including slate-splitting giving you a real insight into quarry life.

The Slate industry has always had a deep history of renewable energy use, from hydros powering compressed air drills to the use of water wheels. Due to this herritage, the Welsh Slate Museum is proud to continue supporting the creation of green energy in Wales.
