The museum area extends by three medium-sized houses built in slate with traditional techniques. The first house is the reconstitution of a Miner's house, with the kitchen, the rest and the workshop areas, where women and children made the slate feathers during the evening as a supplement of the slender wages earned in the mine. In the remaining houses are exhibited the estate and documentation related to the slate, from the extraction to the processing. There is also a temporary exhibition of slate works made by the Vallis Longus School. This space offers educational services, workshops and guided tours on appointment.
