Royal British Columbia Museum
The Royal British Columbia Museum is a place of discovery. Through three unique galleries, the Museum showcases the human and natural history of British Columbia, and features periodic exhibitions of international renown.

Highly realistic and inviting displays, such as the Ice Age and Coastal Forest dioramas, provide visitors with a sense of having truly experienced the authentic settings of many exhibits.

Travel through the last Ice Age and emerge into British Columbian ecosystems as they exist today. The Natural History Gallery is a fascinating re-creation of our coastal forests and marine environment. You can even visit a live tidal pool for an introduction to sea anemones and starfish! The fascinating and exciting Open Ocean exhibit re-creates a submarine voyage to the depths of the marine world.

The history of British Columbia's First Nations is rich and diverse. Stories of triumph, tragedy and survival are told through a collection of remarkable artifacts, including a ceremonial Big House and totem poles.

Step back in time...from the 1970s to the 1700s. The Modern History Gallery re-creates the growth of British Columbia's industrial society through a realistic setting. Start with a stroll down a cobbled street. Experience the larger-than-life films of IMAX at the Royal B.C. Museum.

Operated by the Friends of the Royal BC Museum, the Royal Museum Shop and the National Geographic Shop carry quality items that reflect the human and national history of British Columbia. Featuring jewellery, art, publications, calendars, videos, gourmet BC food products and children's items.
