Visited the museum and took the self guided tour and it was well worth it. Very informative and interesting displays. Combine this with the maritime museum and cafe just up the harbour for an interesting morning before heading out to Parts mountain for a walk.

The Copper Kingdom centre was great. The boards along with the audio soundtracks were great. You could listen to and read as much as you wanted to. It was both informative and interesting with dialogue from 6 characters available. A great place to go before...More
