Just 45 minutes from Vancouver, “Treasures of the Deep” is a spooky event with family-friendly Halloween-themed activities at the Britannia Mine Museum.
In 2022 the event ran on October 15th, 16th, 22nd, 23rd, 29th and 30th. Britannia Mine Museum hosts another Halloween event on the last three weekends of October in 2023. This year’s event, however, will have a new theme.
Britannia Mine’s “Treasures of the Deep” Halloween
Britannia Mine Museum hosts an annual Halloween event at #1 Forbes Way in Britannia Beach, which is just a 12-km drive south of Squamish.
In 2021, the Halloween-themed event was called “Bad to the Bone”. In 2022 the Spooktacular event was called “Treasures of the Deep”. It ran on the last three weekends of October.
In 2023 the Halloween event takes place on the Saturdays and Sundays of October 14th, 15th, 21st, 22nd, 28th and 29th. The activities have a new theme this year. Additional details, however, are to be confirmed.
The Halloween event at Britannia Mine is not only spooky. It’s also made to be a fun and educational experience for everyone each year. For example, the 2022 event featured an underground tour, Science of the Seafloor shows and a Halloween-themed Terra Lab.
In 2022 guests had the opportunity to assemble real killer whale skeletons. The underground tour also had a special twist to make it different from previous years. In 2022 there were hidden treasures to keep an eye out for, which is why the event was called “Treasures of the Deep”.
Admission to the Halloween-themed event in 2022 cost $20 for kids ages 3 to 12 and $25 for folk ages 13 or older. Children under the age of 3 entered for free.
About the Museum

The facility has been preserved by the Britannia Mine Museum Society, so it’s open for educational visits and underground tours. There are multiple buildings to explore, as well as interesting exhibits and activities for all ages.
The museum hosts a variety of special events throughout the year. In addition to the Halloween-themed festivities, there’s also Photos With Santa in December, and special events for Easter, Spring Break, and more.
