Spring Break at Britannia Mine Museum
Join us for Spring Break 2017! Enjoy 3 weeks of activities and events, plus our always-fun underground train, gold panning, exhibits and more. Activities are scheduled for Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 12pm to 2pm. Check out what we have planned:
Life at Britannia
March 13th, 15th, 17th | Monday, Wednesday, Friday | 12pm to 2pm
Learn about life in another time. Let our Interpreters talk you through life at Britannia Mine. Hear the stories behind some of our archival photos and get your hands on real artefacts from a time when Britannia was a bustling mining town. Take a peek at a piece of Canadian history!
March 20th, 22nd, 24th | Monday, Wednesday, Friday | 12pm to 2pm
Ever wonder what's inside your favourite toy? How a phone works? A computer? Tinker Labs gives kids (and adults!) a chance to take apart everyday objects using real tools to investigate their inner workings. Interpreters will be on hand to help visitors explore and learn more about the devices we use in our daily lives. Take it apart, put it back together, or see if you can make something new!
*Don't worry parents - tool use is supervised!
