Description

What was once the largest copper mine in the British Empire is now a multi-award winning attraction. Britannia Mine Museum opens up a little-seen world that fascinates all ages. Just like miners did, visitors climb aboard a mine train and rumble into an authentic tunnel. Entertaining guides describe the workings of drills and tools from the past century. Every visit includes gold panning with the chance to take home frequent findings. A captivating 15-minute film re-creates the past and reveals how families turned their isolated surroundings into pleasant experiences. The Family Play Area keeps young ones entertained. A glittering gift shop offers unique stones and carvings.

The Britannia Mine Museum is just 10 minutes south of Squamish along the Sea-to-Sky highway.
