We're launching two new exhibits on Saturday, May 26th that celebrate the beauty, nature and recovery of Howe Sound, in addition to recognizing two significant
legacies: the importance Britannia Mine played in BC's history; and the impact it made to the surrounding Howe Sound environment.
Both exhibits launch on Saturday, May 26th during our Family Fun Day, a family-friendly event focused on fun, hands-on and educational activities recognizing the contributions of modern mining to British Columbians.
Family Fun Day activities include interactive mineral activities from MineralsEd to learn about
fossils and minerals, hands-on geoscience activities from Below BC, a costume photo booth by
Double Shutter Images, a Finning loader and
a Cardinal Concrete off-road truck, plus our always-fun gold panning, underground tours and exhibits.
We have activities planned for all ages from 10am to 3pm, plus our always fun gold panning, exhibits and underground train tour.
Regular admission applies or free for Museum Members.
