Call for Volunteers!

Want to make a difference in your community? Want to meet new people and join a team of interesting and creative individuals?

Cape Breton Miners Museum is looking for some volunteers to fill committee and Board positions in the upcoming year.

2017 is our 50th Anniversary and we want to celebrate this landmark. So we are looking to the public for people who would like to help.

Every year more that 14,000 people walk through our doors and get to experience an authentic Cape Breton coal mining experience. Our visitors give us rave reviews, so much so that we have received Trip Advisor’s Certificate of Excellence for the last three years and cruise ship patrons have voted us the best shore excursion on the East Coast.

If you would like to play an important part in the 50th Anniversary of Cape Breton Miners Museum, please contact Mary Pat at 902-849-4522 or e-mail
