The Britannia Mine Museum—located just 45 minutes north of Vancouver on the famous Sea-to-Sky highway—has the perfect excuse for you and your family to get out of town this Easter long weekend: A Dinosaur Easter Egg Hunt this Sunday, April 24.

If you haven’t been to the Britannia Mine Museum or haven’t visited in a long time, you and your family are in for a treat. Once the site of the biggest copper mine in the British Empire, the Britannia Mine became a museum and National Historic Site in 1971. Today, after a $14.7 million dollar makeover, the museum offers hands-on fun and thrills along with a glimpse into B.C.’s history; visitors get to pan for gold (and keep the real gold!) and take an underground ride through an old mine.

Easter 2011 at VanDusen Botanical Garden: The Great A-Mazing Egg Hunt

VanDusen's Elizabethan Hedge Maze

It may seem early to be posting about an Easter egg hunt—Easter 2011 isn’t until April 24—but the super-adorable Great A-Mazing Egg Hunt at the gorgeous VanDusen Botanical Garden proved so popular last year that it sold out long before the event itself.

What separates VanDusen’s Great A-Mazing Egg Hunt from any other Easter egg hunt is the venue: this egg hunt takes place inside the Garden’s gorgeous Elizabethan hedge maze. The hedge maze, made up of 3,000 pyramidal cedars, is one of the star attractions at VanDusen; it’s much trickier than it looks (I have trouble finding the centre!) and is terrific fun for egg hunters age 2 – 10 years old.
