Sometimes, I really want to get out of the city, but still stay relatively close to home. The Britannia Mine Museum is beautifully situated on the Sea-to-Sky Highway just before Squamish. It’s about a 45 minute drive from Vancouver on a very pleasant stretch of road.
I’d driven past it many times before, not sure exactly what the giant structure jutting out from the side of the mountain was. Upon closer inspection, I realized that it was a a mine – no longer operational – turned in to a museum. Most people who drive the Sea-to-Sky Highway north from Vancouver are heading to Whistler.
