Must see · Specialty Museum · Mine
Take Bell Island Community Museum - No. 2 Mine Tour to discover stories of diligent miners from the early 1900s. Notice old shovels, bottles, and wheels of carts sitting against the rock walls as you walk through the labyrinth of damp, dark tunnels where boys as young as nine risked their lives digging iron ore by candle light. The last of the six mines on the island was closed in 1966, and many of the tunnels are now flooded. Wear sturdy shoes and a jacket.
