Two people do an activity in the foundry building, a large brick industrial building at the National Slate Museum in Wales
Amgueddfa Lechi Cymru – National Slate Museum.
Since 1994 we have awarded over £500m to more than 3,400 projects in Wales.

From our coastlines and castles to our landscapes, literature and the oldest spoken language in Europe, Wales has an ancient and mythical heritage. It’s the land of rolling hillsides, historic ruins and an industrial heritage that once saw Welsh slate and coal being exported across the world.

Take a look below at some of the projects we have funded.
