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.
|Monday - Friday||Every 1/2 hour from 9.30 AM to 3.30 PM|
|Weekends & Holidays||Every 1/2 hour from 9.30 AM to 3.30 PM|
