Ride down a dark mining tunnel at the Britannia Mine Museum, or look to the skies to see restored aircraft at the Canadian Museum of Flight. Vintage railcars are firmly rooted on the ground at the West Coast Railway Heritage Park.

Visitor Centres have information on local museums and historic sites. Check the hours of operation for museums, as they may vary by season.
