The National Slate Museum is located at Gilfach Ddu on the site of the old Dinorwic slate quarry workshop. The museum is well worth a visit and includes many original items, many of them made in the workshop.

The Caban creates the atmosphere of what it must have been like to pop in for a tea of discussion, with the voices of the quarry men echoing of the walls

A number of quarrymen's cottage have been rebuilt on site and each is dressed for a different time in history. This one representing the 1800's

This room represents the 1960's and is the most recent on the row
