  • 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.
  • The Museum is interesting culturally, but the favorite is for the demonstration of Cup slate made by passionate that did us come away with a real passion for the slate mines and its history. A big plus: the store memory is the theme of slate, here by toy plastic and Cup memory print, craftsmanship and taste good. Was not missed.

  • A visit which we liked a lot between the Museum, the Park and the demonstration of cutting of the slate, we stayed there for 4 hours. Demonstration (workshop) is to see we can browse the nearby park on foot or by bike, there are explanations about signs the guided tour is also very interesting
