The site of the Slate Museum Haut-Martelange is unique in its form in Europe as it reflects a complete image of the Luxembourg slate industry and its more than 200 years old history of extraction. The working sheds, the underground mines, the house of administration, the owners residence with hunting lodge and park, the miners houses are major elements of the 8ha site. Guided tours will help you to discover the world of slate, its extraction, its splitting and drilling as well as the working conditions of the quarrymen.

An additional guided tour is organised at 15:00 on Wednesdays and Sundays in July and August but without the possibility of taking the train. The site is only opened during the visit.
