Plan Your Visit

National Slate Museum is open Sunday – Friday 10am – 4pm (closed Saturdays)

You are still required to wear a face covering indoors and to practice physical distancing. (Please note – a visor is not considered to be a face covering by the Welsh Government. See full face covering guidelines.)

We're good to go logo

The Museum remains FREE TO ENTER. However, to keep you and our staff safe, we have had to reduce the number of people we can welcome on site at any one time. To manage this, all visitors entering the site will need to have booked a free ticket in advance.

Tickets available via Eventbrite.

Book your free ticket in advance

Tickets will be released on a weekly basis for visits on the following Week.

Your safety, and that of our staff, is our priority. To reduce any risks from COVID-19, we have had to change what we do, and the experience at National Slate Museum will be different from what we can normally offer.

Our toilets will be open, and we have put in place an improved hygiene schedule for your safety. Visitors are required to wear face coverings in indoor spaces at our Museums, in line with Welsh Government guidelines and to follow all our safety guidelines while at the museum, even if you have been vaccinated. We reserve the right to refuse entry to those not wearing a face covering without due cause, for example for health and wellbeing reasons, and to those who flout our other safety guidelines.

We are a charity and every penny we raise supports our work with communities across Wales. Please donate if you can.
