CONTEST: Enter for a chance to win a Family Fun Package to Britannia Mine Museum valued at $215

Just up the Sea to Sky Highway on the way to Whistler, the Britannia Mine Museum is a family-friendly ‘gem’ everyone should experience. The good news is, we’re giving away a  Family Fun Package to Britannia Mine Museum valued at $215 so one lucky family can explore the mine all year long!

What you can do at the mine!

Across the globe, few, if any, mines are open for the general public to inspect. Britannia is different.

Once the biggest copper mine in the British Empire, it’s been preserved as a National Historic site. Now, families climb aboard a rumbling mine train and chug into the dark. Inside and out of the tunnel, the mysteries of mining are explained, thanks to smiling, knowledgeable tour guides. Each one of them likes children, maybe because they never have to say “don’t touch”.

Britannia’s hands-on visit includes the fun of panning for gold (you find it, you keep it). A $14-million dollar transformation makes Britannia visitor-friendly. Because it is spread out over 10 acres, everyone can stretch their legs then re-charge in the cozy and comfortable coffee shop. Come with your family or book a guided group tour. Trip Advisor gave it 4 and a half stars. Chances are, you’ll agree.

The Prize!
Enter for a chance to win the following package:

  • A ($140 value) Family Flex Pass, unlimited visits for any two adults and up to 3 youth for the entire year.
  • $50 to the Britannia Mine Museum Company Store where you can pick up a unique souvenir or gift.
