Spring Break at Britannia

Spring Break at Britannia Mine Museum

All spring break events have been suspended due to the COVID-19 outbreak. While there have been no presumptive or confirmed cases of COVID-19 at The Museum and we had hoped that we could continue to offer our visitors a safe, outdoor experience, we are taking this action as a precaution. All on-site programming and events will be suspended during this time as we do our part to help stop the spread of COVID-19 through our community. 

 -----------------------------

Excite the whole family this Spring Break at the Britannia Mine Museum. We've got weeks of fun, educational activities to keep everyone entertained.

  • ToolBox Sessions: Britannia Mine Museum's maker’s lab explores the world of automaton – curious movable objects that help to reveal the laws of motion and expose the make-up of animate things.
  • Copper Crowns: Make a copper crown with the museum's interpreter Marianna Hammerstrom, and learn about Britannia Beach's signature pageantry event.
  • Self-driven scavenger hunts: There is no better way to explore our enormous site than mastering one of our scavenger hunts. A prize awaits those who complete the challenge!
  • Earth Shakers: Learn about earth movement with Sarah Jackson-Brown, our resident geologist. Monday, March 16th.
