Mineral Sensorium with the Britannia Mine Museum

Saturday, July 6 & Sunday, July 7 | 10am–4pm

Did you know that rock can float in water? Or that some rocks flex and peel?

The Britannia Mine Museum is coming to the Whistler Children’s Festival with a box full of various minerals that have incredible and surprising qualities. The agenda: allow visitors to experience the broad spectrum of mineral sensorial possibilities. Come and test visual, aural, tactile, gustatory, and olfactory among other characteristics of rocks.
