There will be several special activity stations set up just for DIG day. Pop by the Britannia Mine Museum to explore these added attractions from 11:00 AM–3:00 PM.

- Volcano Station: Instantly grow crystals between microscope slides and explore different types of volcanic rock, from glass to bombs.
- Rock and Mineral Station: Learn about the environments rocks formed in and discover how minerals make them useful to us.
- Plate Tectonics Station: Try our 'Pangea' jigsaw puzzle.
- Fossil Station: See a real dinosaur footprint and dig for fossils in sand.
- Gold Station: Explore and handle some of the Museum’s gold collection – yes, real gold!
