Britannia Mine Museum (Britannia Beach)

Halloween adventurers will be battening down the hatches with three weekends of spooktacular fun at the Britannia Mine Museum.

This year, the Museum is running a tight ship with a “Treasures of the Deep” themed Halloween” full of seafaring festivities, including a colourful sunken shipwreck fantasy world inside the Machine Shop, and a real bone-chilling killer whale skeleton display inside the “Terror” Lab.

Running the weekends of October 15 and 16, 22 and 23, 29 and 30 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., visitors will go on a “Treasures of the Deep” underground train odyssey in search of hidden bounties, navigate a scavenger hunt for ore samples, and go overboard with “Science of the Seafloor” experiments where they’ll learn about how mineral deposits are formed under water.

In 2021, the UNESCO’s Man and the Biosphere (MAB) Programme named the Howe Sound/ Átl’ka7tsem region as Canada’s 19th UNESCO Biosphere Region.

Inside the “Terror” Lab for the months of October and November, the Museum is also bringing back “Ore and Orcas: The Remediation of Howe Sound/ Átl’ka7tsem”, a dynamic visual exhibit showcasing the O120 Orca bone display and other marine specimens, to shine the light on the remediation of the Howe Sound marine ecosystem.

The O120 Orca bone display is the only travelling killer whale skeleton in the country and the only offshore killer whale used for educating people about marine conservation and the plight of whales in B.C. waters.

The “Ore and Orcas” exhibit is an educational partnership with the Strawberry Isle Marine Research Society (SIMRS), the Beaty Biodiversity Museum and the Porpoise Conservation Society.

The exhibit will educate visitors on the mine’s history – including the impacts of pollution and subsequent remediation, recovery and protection with the EPCOR Water Treatment Plant – through the lens of its impact on the Howe Sound food chain.

Located 45 minutes north of Vancouver on the picturesque Sea-to-Sky highway, the Britannia Mine Museum provides unique and memorable experiences that engage visitors of all ages.

Visitors can enjoy fun exhibits and crowd favourites like the underground mine train, gold panning, the historic 20-storey concentrator Mill building and its BOOM! special effects show, the Terralab STEAM learning space, the minerals and gem gallery, and the Beaty Lundin Visitor Centre.

The Halloween “special event” rate is $25 for youth and adults, and $20 for kids ages three to twelve, which includes the Halloween activities, “Treasures of the Deep” underground odyssey, museum exhibits, and gold panning.

The Ore & Orcas exhibit is available between October 1st and November 30th with regular admission, including all Halloween dates.

The Museum is still offering the traditional guided underground tours and the BOOM! Mill show via regular admissions.

Advanced ticket purchase and reservation is recommended as special events are often sold out.

Check the Museum’s website for specific tour times and to purchase tickets in advance.

Ophelia (Vancouver)

Vancouver diners are invited to indulge in a supernatural south-of-the-border feast on Thursday, October 27th as Ophelia sets the stage for a one-night-only Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) dinner service.

Halloween Events Vancouver 2022

A storied holiday observed throughout Latin America, Día de los Muertos is a traditional and much revered holiday celebrated in Mexico. The multi- day holiday involves family and friends gathering to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. It is commonly portrayed as a day of celebration rather than one of mourning. The festivity has become a national symbol and as such is taught in the nation’s school system, typically asserting an indigenous origin. In 2008, the tradition was inscribed in the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.

Ophelia will be transformed into a mystical space with flickering candles and vibrant decorations. Staff will create an enchanting ambiance for diners by painting their faces with traditional calavera (skull) makeup and curating a soundtrack of Mexican folk music.

This special dinner will start at 6:30PM with first course served at 7PM, guests will be invited to take a seat in the dimly lit dining room and indulge in a decadent multi-menu (see below) prepared by Ophelia’s Executive Chef Francisco Higareda and his team.

Reservations are available for Ophelia’s Día de los Muertos dinner must be made via email at [email protected] and secured with a credit card, with full payment taken at the table.

Diners are encouraged to dress up! For more information about Ophelia, visit
