Celebrating 100 years of Mill No. 3

Feature Exhibit On Now!

Run Dates: May 20th to November 5th, 2023

The Britannia Mine Museum is commemorating “100 Years of Mill No. 3” with a feature exhibit inside the Machine Shop that will run until November 5th, 2023

Designated as a National Historic Site, the 20-storey Mill No. 3 building was an architectural feat of engineering at its time, built on the side of Mount Sheer at Britannia Beach over a period of 18 months, and completed in 1923. The Museum’s feature exhibit “100 Years of Mill No. 3” delves into how Mill No. 3 served as the heartbeat of the Britannia community, its history, technological innovations, and impact as an icon of the Sea to Sky Corridor.

Mill No. 3 played a significant role in providing for the Britannia Beach and Mount Sheer mining communities, contributing to BC’s economic well-being until the Mine’s closure in 1974, and has served as an iconic landmark and feature along the Sea-to-Sky region for the last 100 years.

Included with the cost of Museum admission.
