Newest Exhibit: Foundations

"Foundations" on the freshly restored Howe Sound Deck is a new, permanent, outdoor, open-air exhibit located near the entrance of the Train Pavilion. Sitting 40 feet above the Sea to Sky Highway with breathtaking panoramic views of Howe Sound, Foundations explores Britannia's colourful history and how mining has contributed to the community and province.

It also recognizes the mine's environmental impact on the region, the resulting remediation efforts, and the continued recovery of the Howe Sound area. The exhibit looks at ongoing research and innovation in the Canadian mining industry towards more sustainable mining practices.

Permanent exhibit opens May 26th. Enjoy the view!
