Viajará en el tiempo y disfrutará de cómo era todo para un minero con una visita al famoso Britannia Mine Museum. Situado entre Vancouver y Whistler se encuentra Britannia Mine, la comunidad de mina de cobre de British Columbia en 1900. Este galardonado museo le proporcionará una visión en profundidad de las minas a lo largo de su historia. Las entradas generales también incluyen cribado de oro, además, un paseo por las profundidades de una verdadera mina.
Quite a fascinating tour in a beautiful part of the coastline - the train going into the mountain was my favourite! Also includes a demonstration of the ways miners used to work in the beginning and throughout - from old noisy drills to working in candlelight, including blowing the miners whistle at the end awesomely loud!. Ends with a quick tour in the huge 20 story building that you see as you drive past. Have ample time to investigate the remainder of the site - all very fascinating and well laid out.
The location and atmosphere was nice. We took the greyhound bus to Britannia Beach and had a very beautiful scenic drive. Overall we had a fun time. The cafe they have was closed due to staffing issues - the Britannia Mine Museum Gift Shop has ice cream bars, coffee and cookies, chips for sale, but if you are really hungry you will have to go back down the mountain to Vancouver like we did to get lunch.
My family and I want to compliment our tour guide Gord. He was friendly, yet professional, timely, courteous, knowledgable and upbeat. We really can tell that he enjoys being a tour guide. The tour to Whistler on Wednesday, 6/7 was a highlight of our trip.
Great little train ride through the mine, with demonstrations and a wondrous tale of the history of this mine from extremely well informed guides. Loved it. Great break on the drive between Vancouver and Whistler.
