The museum shows films, pictures of years gone by of how the miners lived and worked. I especially liked viewing the cottages and comparing one from 1901 to one from 1969.

Beautiful lake views from the Llanberis Quarry. Recommend a visit to the museum, it is free and gives a fantastic insight to the importance of slate mining to the area.
