The National Slate Museum

National Slate Museum

The National Slate Museum in Llanberis is one of Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales’s seven sites.

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. Dinorwig Quarry closed in 1969. Today – rather than fashioning wagons and forging rails – the workshops tell a very special story: the story of the Welsh slate industry.
