I have never been to a copper works and art gallery before - I hadn't realised how much copper is mined in Canada and hadn't previously given a thought to how copper work is done. This family run business is a treasure trove - you get to see an example of how the copper is worked and chance to tour... More

Bring your credit card because they have a stack of quality stuff, although it's not cheap. Ask around for the family history with the religious works - it's fascinating.

Beautiful copper art available for purchase directly from its creators; a family-owned business featuring skilled daughters carrying on their father's work. The tour features an artistic demonstration of how the copper is developed.

The shop explores art objectives made of copper, from how is mined, then made into decorative art and jewelry. The sales floor has many offering but difficult to purchase when 3 buses of tourist were there at one time. So go when the parking lot is empty and enjoy! It is worth a visit!

A great find. We had a very interesting tour by one of the daughters of Albert Gilles who was the man who had produced the majority of the copper artwork in this museum. We were then allowed to have a 'go' ourselves on a small piece of copper after a brief demonstration. It was great fun. There was no pressure... More

We were greeted by the daughter of Albert Gilles, the man who did all the copper artwork. He passed away several years ago. In the gallery are beautiful copper wall art, desk sets, boxes and other pieces made by Mr. Gilles. The highlight was the gallery of copper wall pieces depicting the life of Christ. I believe there were 50... More

This is both a museum and a shop. One of the owners showed us how they made their copper items. It was fascinating, understandable, and not too long. You can get a souvenir (I bought bookmarks) for under $20. But be prepared, there are so many beautiful items and I could have spent a lot more.
