Donations to the Britannia Mine Museum
Our many donors do a tremendous amount for the Museum. As a registered charity, we rely on donations along with tickets sales to operate. The Museum is not a government funded organization. For this reason, we say "thank you" to the donations we receive. We are very grateful to the generosity of all our donors, from those who donate a few dollars to the individuals and companies that support us with significant investment, every little bit helps.
Britannia Project Donors and Contributors
The 2010 Museum transformation was a result of an active board and the generous donations from industry, government and individuals (please click here for a complete list of donors). The enhanced site features exciting new venues for fun family entertainment and engagement about mining, local arts and culture, restored heritage buildings, historical research and preservation, and education exhibits.
"These are exciting times for the Museum and we're so pleased with the results of our extensive restoration and renovations. Everyone poured their heart and soul into their work and it"s evident when you explore the new exhibits," says Kristin Clausen, Executive Director of the Museum. "This transformation wouldn't have been possible without the hard work of all our contractors and suppliers, as well as the generous contributions of our partners."
The Museum is grateful to Western Economic Diversification ($5 million contribution) and to Canada-British Columbia Infrastructure Stimulus Fund ($2 million contribution)
