Meetings

The Board meets monthly on the 4th Monday at the Cobalt Mining Museum.

Statement of Purpose

The Cobalt Mining Museum has been created to collect, preserve, research, exhibit and interpret artifacts and specimens pertinent to hardrock mining in Canada, with particular reference to silver mining and the development of the Cobalt Mining Camp. Artifacts that serve to illustrate the founding, settlement and development of the Town of Cobalt and surrounding area from the arrival of the railway in 1903 to the present will also be collected.

Vision

The museum will strive to present the best experience to tourists though our museum exhibits, the Colonial Mine Adit Underground Tour and the Heritage Silver Trail.  The Board of Directors constantly strive to have the museum become financially independent.

Historical Society

The Cobalt Historical Society is a group of individuals who dedicate time and energy to maintaining the history of the Cobalt Mining Camp. This camp takes in the Town of Cobalt and properties throughout Coleman Township. They produce a regular newsletter which features insightful articles about historic people or places.

The Bunker

Bunker Military Museum

The Bunker Military Museum has moved to its new home in the Bilsky Block, once home to the infamous Fraser Hotel. It is a popular attraction for tourists and local area residents. In 1989, the town’s historic railway station was restored and The Bunker Military Museum was born.

This original private collection contains artifacts from the Boer War to the present. The collection is unique in that it reflects the daily life and conditions from the soldier’s perspective.

Bunker Military Museum

The collection is international including numerous uniforms and items from the many sides of many world conflicts.

The new facility has been completely renovated and provides more space. It has museum standard environmental controls and lighting and is totally accessible, with extra wide doors and accessible washroom facilities. The viewing and gallery spaces have been designed with all visitors in mind.

The Bunker Military Museum is situated on 24 Prospect Avenue. The Museum hours are seasonal so please call to confirm.
