Cape Breton Miners’ Museum

Cape Breton Miners’ Museum

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!
