Opening in Summer 2019, the Mill Show will introduce audiences to the story, sights, and sounds behind this architectural marvel with an immersive live-action experience inside Mill no.3. The experience involves multiple screens, over thirty speakers, physical and special effects--bringing all 20-storey's of the historic Mill rumbling back to life.
British Columbians have a personal connection to Britannia Mine—a partner, a parent, or a grandparent who worked at Britannia—however, few know the Mill’s story and its purpose first-hand. Maybe you've driven past along the Sea-to-Sky highway and wondered what the behemoth building on the side of the mountain is. With the launch of the Mill Show, the Museum is eager to give a new generation the opportunity to discover and immerse themselves in the magic of the Mill and the sights and sounds of the engineering marvel.
The Mill Show was produced in partnership with local companies Vista Collaborative Arts and Dynamic Attractions--a made in B.C. success story. This project would not have been possible without the generous support from Museum donors and the Government of Canada.
