The Cape Breton Miners’ Museum in Glace Bay pays tribute to the contribution of the region’s coal miners and coal mining industry. The museum also features a fascinating exhibit on the geological development of Cape Breton’s coal field. The Miners’ Village, 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 be sure to attend a “Men of the Deeps” concert (contact us for more details). 

After touring our museum, stop by our gift shop where you will find local Cape Breton-made arts and crafts. Finally, end your visit with a delicious meal at our Miners’ Village Restaurant while enjoying our Cape Breton hospitality!
