Royal BC Museum, Victoria
British Columbia proudly offers many fabulous museums, including the Royal BC Museum in Victoria, one of the top museums in the world. Step back far in time in these intriguing places of discovery, to view the realistic and inviting displays of native culture, history and artifacts, and study the natural history of this beautiful region. Learn how nature has shaped and cared for the people who have lived in British Columbia for thousands of years, and how that all changed with the arrival of European settlers just over 200 years ago.

The best way to understand and gain an appreciation of the unique and colourful history of British Columbia is by visiting its museums. The larger museums are certainly fascinating to visit, but almost every small town in BC has a museum showcasing the history and heritage of the surrounding region, and it is often the museums and historical societies in these smaller communities that are the most rewarding to visit.
