The Cape Breton Miners’ Museum in Glace Bay pays tribute to the contribution of the region’s coal miner and coal mining industry in the advance of civilization. The museum features an exhibit area on the geological development of Cape Breton’s coal field. The Miners’ Village which is located next to the museum allows you to step back in time and visit a company store and a home from the period 1850–1900.
Take an underground guided tour of the Ocean Deeps Colliery, a coal mine beneath the museum. If you are visiting during the summer months, enjoy a “Men of the Deeps” concert (call 1 week in advance).
Dine at our quaint and beautiful Miners’ Village Restaurant where you will be served with Cape Breton hospitality! After touring our museum visit our gift shop where you will find local Cape Breton-made arts and crafts.
