Supporters of the Museum

Donations have always been important to the Museum, but the challenges wrought by COVID have made them increasingly vital. Our principal business model relies on some 94% of general operating revenue coming through admissions, the achievement of which has been significantly challenged by forced closures, new social distancing protocols and site capacity limits.

We gratefully acknowledge the contributions from our supporters for their financial and in-kind donations as well as the sponsors of our special events and exhibits. Our Annual Reports will list all Museum donations regardless of amount.

Donor Funded Projects

As well as supporting our operational revenues to maintain business continuity through these difficulties, the support of our donors has enabled the Museum to fund a number of important projects.


A rehabilitation project, designed to share the history and experience of working in the Mill--a National Historic Site--from its construction in 1920 to closure in 1974.


The Britannia Project

A three-phase, $14.7 million revitalization project undertaken in 2010 which furthered the Museum's ability to educate about Canada's role as a leader in sustainable mining and resource development, environmental stewardship, and the history of Britannia Beach
