Squamish's Greatest Indoor Activities

Most visitors know about Squamish's abundance of outdoor adventure. But when the weather turns or you're craving a reprieve from the elements take some time to explore the great indoors and spend an afternoon laughing with friends on a different kind of Squamish adventure.

Britannia Mine Museum

Take an immersive tour through Canada's rich mining history and learn all about the iconic cliff-hugging mill and townsite of Britannia Beach. The gigantic museum includes half a dozen buildings which each serves their own purpose to familiarize you with the copper mining industry.

Ride underground on an authentic railway tunnel, view historic artifacts and sit inside railway carts. The highlight for many visitors will be experiencing BOOM! the award-winning multisensory mill show that brings the mill's former glory back to life. We recommend dressing warm as the mill and underground tour can be quite chilly, but you can always warm up with a hot beverage at the Chatterbox Café afterwards.

Airhouse Sports Academy

People of all ages love to go wild around this freestyle training centre! Drop-In daily on to the trampolines, ride the skateboard mini ramp, practice your parkour and gymnastics skills on the spring floor, and play on the rings/bars. This is an active experience in a safe and fun learning environment. A fantastic place for kids and adults alike to train and play, while progressing your skills and having some fun.

Take a step back in time and visit the replica turn of the century railway townsite at the Railway Museum of British Columbia. The site boasts the largest collection of rolling stock in all of Western Canada and includes noteworthy pieces such as the Royal Hudson Steam Engine. Most of the train cars are fully restored and open to the public to explore. There are also a collection of homes and a replica train station loaded with vintages wares to pursue through. For grandparents, it may be a trip down memory lane while the younger generations will have a chance to take a peek into an older way of life. Hours vary throughout the winter, please visit their website for special events and openings.
