Cape Breton Miners Museum

The Cape Breton Miners Museum pays tribute to the region's long and rich history of coal mining. It is home to profound stories of miners and their families, the communities that were born and raised by the flame of a coal fire, and the resource that helped build a nation. Situated on one of the most picturesque coast of Cape Breton Island, the Museum site offers something for everyone. We welcome you to come and explore an authentic coal mine with a retired miner as your guide and to experience life in a coal-mining town. It's yours to discover at the Miners Museum.
