This is a nice museum where you can hear about the large copper mining going on In Canada today, see the incredible work of the famous Gilles And then actually have a hands on experience by creating your very own take-home piece work of art.

This tour starts with a demonstration about making things from copper followed by browsing the museum/gift shop. There is a nice display of items made by the founder and it seems most things are for sale.

Well worth the visit. They have two museums. Highly informative. Prices on their copperware are a bit high, but the work is excellent. Staff very helpful.

The owners will come out and do a small explanation of their work. Check out the 700lb church doors in the back. No photos permitted.
