This National Historic Site offers visitors a fun, family-friendly and educational destination that engages young and old with memorable experiences found nowhere else. Visitors always enjoy their experience and it is consistently rated 4 1⁄2 stars or higher on TripAdvisor.
Suitable for up to 36 people, our 30-minute guided tour, a Canadian Signature Experience, invites visitors into an authentic haulage tunnel aboard our underground train. Inside, visitors learn from insightful tour interpreters about the evolution of copper mining, see live mining machinery demonstrations, and experience what life as a miner was really like!
BOOM! introduces audiences to the story, sights, and sounds behind the architectural marvel with an immersive live-action experience inside Mill no.3. The experience involves multiple screens, over thirty speakers, physical and special effects--bringing all 20-storeys of the historic Mill rumbling back to life.
In addition to the Underground Tour and BOOM!, admission includes the opportunity to explore the 10 – acre site with its many exhibits and buildings as well as a unique chance to pan for gold!
