The Underground Tour

A Canadian Signature Experience

The Underground is an extraordinary opportunity to see what life was like at one the British Empire's largest copper mines. As an important part of British Columbia's history, Britannia Mine Museum is proud to offer our guests access to this Canadian Signature Experience.  

Just like miners back in 1914, you'll board our mine train and rumble inside an early haulage tunnel. Inside, our engaging team of interpreters will demonstrate actual mining equipment, teach you about Britannia's quest for copper, and allow you to experience the mine's working conditions.

A historic interpreter describes the conditions of mining in the past. The experience features two incidences of loud noise. Warnings will be given and young children will require an adult to cover their ears.

The underground tour is part of your admission. Please keep in mind the departure time of the underground tour is included with your admissions reservation and cannot be easily changed should you miss the departure time.
