Bell Island Community Museum & Number 2 Mine Tour

Bell Island

Visit Bell Island, a 20-minute ferry ride from Portugal Cove. See icebergs or even a whale. You'll be greeted at our museum by local guides, who will share our history and tell you amazing stories of 12-year old boys working 10-hour days by candle light, and miners risking their lives to supply the world markets with precious iron-ore. After your tour, sit and enjoy our own coffee while you share your experience with other visitors. Visit our gift store and bring home a souvenir of your visit.
