  • I was a pleasure to visit this Museum for the history of the extraction of slate. First of all it is very difficult to find the GPS we did turn a time around, with a camping because it has not been easy. Then there is no signage even before. It seems that a conflict opposed the Museum association and the municipality. I do not congratulate this municipality who is also dismissive of its heritage. Suddenly, too late, we did not do on the double visit to the rooms, which even if they are very well, are not as representative as mining sites in the North that we have already visits. The asking price of entry has not encouraged us either (€7.50)

  • Continue to support the slate through this museum run by volunteers. Respect.trelaze suffered during the closing of the last well 2 years ago. With this museum we understand better the efforts of these minors.

  • A very interesting insight into an industry that no longer exists in this area. Lots of models and samples and an interesting little shop. The area though was strewn with rubbish. This is very unusual in France, so management, please get the place cleaned up.
  • Beautiful work this museum deserves Government support, and however you must change the VHS of presentation at the beginning of the visit, video editing is done wrong! But the guide, a former miner tells him

  • Small informative Museum, don't miss the really interesting demonstration. Everything seems implemented to save a past, a story and a know-how that disappears (it has more operating).
