The Britannia Mine Museum was established in 1971 to preserve the material and social history of mining in British Columbia, and to educate the public about mining. The Britannia Mine Museum Society is the governing body of the Museum. As a registered charity, the society is self-sufficient in its ability to earn revenues to maintain its operation. These include gift shop sales, admissions, donations and the sale of memberships.


The professional management team and staff at the Britannia Mine Museum are passionate about learning and sharing their knowledge of mining and mining practices with others. From visitor services to school tours, site management and beyond, we are dedicated to creating an engaging learning and entertaining experience for visitors of all ages. The Board of Directors are eminent mining and business individuals who offer leadership and valuable insight to the Museum and management.


The Museum has a dedicated press section for media releases and background information for media.
