Us at the Museum

Come, be a part of BC history, an integral story that originated way back in 1888.

Britannia: Just What the Doctor Ordered. Yes, it was 1888 when Alexander Forbes, an enterprising doctor from Scotland was out prospecting in the Britannia area. Also hunting for game, he came across a fortune when he stumbled upon a patch of mineralized rock. It was that chance event that eventually led to one of the biggest copper mines in the world. Now, see what it can lead to for you…

Membership: Benefits to your family. Or your company!

The Britannia Mine Museum is a non profit society that inspires the exploration of individual and societal connections to British Columbia's mining; its past, present and future.

We have 70,000 visitors to the Museum every year. It’s gratifying that many want to come again and share the experience with other family members.
