The holiday season is upon us and there’s no better way to get into the holiday spirit than a visit with Santa at Britannia Mine Museum! This year, mark your calendar for December 9th & 10th and December 16th & 17th when Santa arrives for a truly special event. Your family is in for an exciting photo opportunity with Santa himself as he prepares his sleigh for the grand adventure following an unexpected mishap that left his sleigh in need of repair.

Step into Santa’s workshop at Britannia Mine Museum and experience the magic of the holidays. An enchanting Christmas experience comes to life as visitors get a behind-the-scenes peek at Santa preparing his sleigh for his global expedition on Christmas Eve. Santa is excited to take some time out of his busy schedule making toys to meet and greet families from around Metro Vancouver. Get the whole family involved for a special photo opportunity with Santa to share your holiday wishes. Afterward, enjoy some hot cocoa as you explore the rest of the Britannia Mine Museum.

The Britannia Mine Museum has decked the halls with Christmas decor. Visitors will have access to all the incredible lower site exhibits at the museum, including Gold Panning, the dynamic exhibit Ore and Orcas in the Terra Lab where you can view specimens from the Howe Sound, including an orca skeleton, and the Land of Thundering Snow avalanche exhibit. Learn about what causes avalanches, how they affect the ecosystem and human settlement, and how to stay safe in avalanche areas. Entry to the Photos with Santa event excludes the underground experience and BOOM! If you wish to enjoy the full Britannia Mine experience and have your photo taken with Santa, please book the full experience option, which includes the underground tour and the award-winning “BOOM!” attraction that brings the old mill roaring back to life.  There’s so much to see and do this holiday season at Britannia Mine Museum!
