Know More about this tour
Explore the numerous educational exhibits, films, displays and hands-on activities within the state-of-the-art museum. Then, just like miners did, climb aboard a mine train and rumble into a real mine tunnel. Your knowledgeable guide will transport you into the past; many of the guides actually worked at the mines before they closed in the 1970s!
Get a first-hand look at the history of mining as you discover the inner workings of the massive mill building, once the heartbeat of the Britannia community and today one of the last remaining gravity- fed mills in North America. After, learn how to mine gold at the gold-panning station and then take home the treasures you find!
