As a self-supporting, non-profit organization, the Britannia Mine Museum relies on revenues from donations, ticket sales, gift shop purchases and memberships to maintain operations. In order to limit the spread of COVID-19, the Museum closed for several months through 2020, and after re-opening, our visitation continued to be affected. We had to drastically reduced tour sizes and site capacity.
We continue to run tours, open new exhibits, and push ahead with our long term vision of building the museum into a fun-filled, educationally-focused modern institution. The Britannia Mine Museum is fortunate: the spaciousness of the site, with its abundance of outdoor space, means that we remain a low risk destination.
Donations allow the Museum to continue in our mandate of teaching guests about the site’s history, and the vital role played by minerals in contemporary culture. Please consider joining our generous community and offering a donation.
If you wish to make a donation by mail please send a cheque to: Britannia Mine Museum, PO Box 188, Britannia Beach, V0N1J0.
