In Summer 2019, the Museum will open the doors to the Mill Show--a one-of-a-kind live-action experience that will introduce audiences to the iconic Mill no.3 and return its thunderous roar to Britannia Beach.
What is the Mill Show?
The Mill Show is a new feature attraction at the Britannia Mine Museum and an immersive multi-sensory show that brings the 20-storey Mill building and National Historic Site back to life.
What can people expect with the Mill Show?
The Mill Show will take visitors back in time for an authentic, thrilling, visceral and acoustic experience, taking advantage of the sheer mass and awe of the 20-storey historical Mill building. Visitors will discover what the Mill did when it was fully operational and what the workers experienced until it closed in 1974.
What is the purpose of the Mill Show?
During its life of operation, Britannia Mine was one of the largest copper mines in the British Commonwealth. To process all of the ore that was mined from the Mountains above, the Mine relied on Mill no.3--an engineering marvel and beacon of economic prosperity for the community of Britannia. As an important piece of British Columbia's history, the Mill Show will bring Mill no.3 back to life so that another generation can discover its legacy and its impact on the people who worked there.
Who produced the Mill Show?
This is truly a made in BC story. The Mill Show was a collaboration between several BC-based organizations.
