Introduction: The Britannia Mine Museum is a National Historic Site that lies about 50 km north of Vancouver in British Columbia. The Museum is governed by the Britannia Beach Historical Society and operates as a tourist attraction which sees around 60,000 visitors and 10,000 students a year exploring the history of the former Britannia Mine while learning about the relevance of mining and minerals in our daily lives. In the Museum’s care are twenty two heritage buildings, around 7000 artefacts, 3000 archival documents and 9500 archive photos. The Museum opened in 1975 and has been delivering underground guided tours alongside exhibits since then.
