Trip Planner: Europe / UK / Wales / North Wales / Snowdonia National Park / Llanberis / National Slate Museum
Inside the disused 19th-century workshops where miners once toiled is National Slate Museum. The museum is part of the National Museum of Wales and sits along the European Route of Industrial Heritage. Inside the workshops, refurbished rooms set up to evoke the quarryman's daily life. Learn the history of slate and the process by which it's mined. The heavy slate was transported between buildings by the water-powered tram still functioning in the courtyard. A visit to National Slate Museum represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Llanberis trip tool to plot your vacation.
