This spot impressed me more than I thought it would! I haven't been and truly explored the place since grade school and I was entertained. We did the tour which was fun- you get to go into the mine, see the equipment and working conditions...More

A must visit museum of mining history in Canada. The tour of the mine also enhanced what the mining industry was about. Definitely recommend as a stop on the way to Whistler.

After driving by for years finally decided to stop. The mine museum is quite good and the train ride into the mine is very interesting. Well worth it. There lots of great exhibits to see so don't rush.

Try to go earlier and get the 1st train at 10am,Allow at least 2 to 3 hours to view the exhibits and to take the underground train ( about 50 minutes ). This is educational for both kids and adults.

There's a lot to see at the mine and the museum. The train ride is fun and especially suitable for young children. It's very damp and cold inside the mountain, so dress warmly. The tour was worthwhile and the guide was very friendly. We learned...More
