Doggy Daycare

To ensure the safety of all animals, visitors, and our employees, we only allow accredited guide and service dogs - as defined by the BC Government- to fully explore on-site with their handler. Dogs must be leashed with a short, non-retractable leash.

Please note that there are loud noises in the underground and BOOM! show. When possible, Britannia Mine Museum will provide specialty dog hearing protection.

For all other furry friends there are lots of options for day care for your dog in Squamish. Give your dog a fun day out while you visit the Britannia Mine Museum!

Please do not leave your dog in a hot car!
