Celebrate Canada Day at Britannia Mine Museum

Saturday, July 1st, 2023

11:00 am to 3:00 pm
Included with Museum Admission

 To celebrate our 2023 feature exhibit "Celebrating 100 Years of Mill No. 3", and Canada Day,  we invite you to enjoy live music, fun, and games at the Britannia Mine Museum.

“Mill No. 3 played a significant role in providing for the Britannia Beach and Mount Sheer mining communities, contributing to BC’s economic well-being until the Mine’s closure in 1974, and has served as an iconic landmark and feature along the Sea-to-Sky region for the last 100 years,” Laura Minta Holland, Curator of Collections and Engagement at the Britannia Mine Museum said in a media release.

We want "to pay homage to the Mill’s 100-year history and importance with our celebratory event and feature exhibit, as well as highlight its technology and engineering marvel as Canada’s last remaining gravity-fed concentrator Mill,” Holland said.  

The performance, games and access to the "Celebrating 100 Years of Mill No. 3" exhibit are all included in museum admission on July 1st.

 Space is Limited. Advance booking is recommended.
