  • Fun for the whole family! For €5/per person you can split pieces of the local slate to help find more trilobite fossils.

  • This small but interesting museum, owned by a private entity, showcases a great balance between business (the slate quarry) and science. It deserves all the support as it strives to find, preserve...

  • Amazing place in the middle of the country!! Very recommended!
  • Um museu privado que faz um verdadeiro serviço público! A visita custa 4€ mas vale a pena pois é guiada com a sabedoria e paixão se Sr Manuel Valério. A visita é composta por 3 partes, começa no auditório com um filme que enquadra o contexto do local. De seguida somos convidados a mergulhar na história das trilovites, onde temos a oportunidade de ver os melhores exemplares encontrados na pedreira. Por fim, no exterior, podemos ver os instrumentos usados e um troço da via romana.
