Fun Facts

Running from May 20 to September 5, the “More than a Mine: Recreation in a Mining Town”  new summer exhibit takes a nostalgic historical throwback to how Britannia residents enjoyed their recreational life during the mining days, and how social gatherings helped strengthen and build the resiliency of a remote mining town.  Open Daily.
