In March 2017, the Federal Government announced that the Museum’s Mill Experience Project was to receive a federal $1.4 million contribution. This funding, in addition to our other generous donors listed below, was allocated towards the rehabilitation of the Mill with a multi-sensory show (BOOM!) that allows guests to experience what life in the Mill was like in 1920.
This project is part of the Museum's continued effort to share the history of our National Historic Site.
A heartfelt thanks to the Government of Canada, Province of British Columbia, and our corporate and individual donors. Your contributions made it possible to showcase the innovation, history and future of Canada’s mining sector.
BOOM! has received great reviews from the media and community and in November of 2021 won the TEA Award.
Please enjoy a behind the scenes look at the work that went into this “thrilling adventure.”
