How about visiting the Britannia Mine Museum this weekend? The venue is an award-winning National Historic Site and has been receiving rave reviews since its recent re-opening. Just like miners did in the past, visitors can 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 real gold!
Dress warmly or bring a sweater – it’s cool on the train ride and underground. Also, be sure to wear comfortable shoes to explore the site and underground.
Located between Vancouver and Whistler, the Britannia Mine Museum is open 7 days a week from 9am. The last tour happens at 4:30pm. For more information, visit http://britanniaminemuseum.ca . Enjoy it!
