A Dickens Christmas
The Britannia Mine Museum is celebrating the holiday season with the warmth and cheer of a Victorian-themed “Dickens Christmas” featuring whimsical miniature ceramic village window displays from Canada’s Department 56 throughout the historic Machine Shop. Inspired by the nostalgic “A Christmas Carol”, the miniature village displays are reminiscent of Victorian England during Charles Dickens’ time.
Inside the Machine Shop, visitors can explore the beautiful Christmas village centerpiece, and Santa’s North Pole Toy Shop window displays decked out with Victorian-themed décor, Christmas trees, wreaths, filled with the cheerful sounds of miniature church bells, horses, and carolers.
Every Saturday and Sunday from December 5-20, visitors can sit with Santa and take their own photos for a memorable keepsake, and create some cheerful crafts at the holiday activity tables to take home.
Special event pricing for adults and seniors is $15, children (ages 5-18) is $10 and children under 4 years of age get free admission. Event pricing does not include underground tour. Tours are available during the day for regular admission price.
