Slate factory

A unique piece of Glarus industrial history. In this factory, founded in 1898, they mainly used to make school writing slates, involving over 30 different processes, and later score boards for card games and other souvenirs. Here, in the only working slate factory in Switzerland, the slate dust, sawdust and smell of lime are combined with the latest educational approach to museums (group guided tours only, by arrangement).
