Slate Factory Museum

Switzerland’s only functioning slate factory (Schiertafelfabrik) can be found amidst the wooden houses of the idyllic village of Elm (Glarus Canton).

After production ceased in 1961, a foundation acquired the factory with the aim of preserving for posterity the once flourishing slate industry with its global exports.

The tools, equipment, machines, slate dust, sawdust and the smell of glue are still there.

The old craft of making slate products is presented with the unique machines and production methods.
