The Brazeau Collieries Coal Mine is a designated national and provincial historic site in the central Alberta foothills.
The Heritage Centre, located in the old school building, is open from May long weekend to September long weekend from 9-5. It houses the heritage museum, miners cafe and a gift shop. Tours of the historic mine site can be booked and additional information about the site and area obtained at the visitor information desk in the museum.
Mine tours are conducted (about 2 ½ hours - weather permitting, $ 10 per adult) from May long weekend until the end of August daily at 1 pm and continue to be run until mid September on weekends only. In July and August there is usually a shorter tour offered daily at 10 am. The tours are all above ground and your guide will provide an insight into the history of the mine and area while touring the many well preserved structures on site.
