What You Can Expect
The permanent galleries of the Royal BC Museum focus on natural and human histories. The First Peoples Gallery gives you a dramatic glimpse into the lives of the native settlers before and after the arrival of the Europeans. See, hear and smell the past as you travel through 200 years of British Columbia's amazing history.
In the Natural History Gallery, you'll take a journey across time and see how British Columbia's natural environment has changed over thousands of years. Learn about the mammoths and giant bison that roamed this area during the ice age, and the animals of today, such as the iconic grizzly bear, sea lions and blue herons.
From May 17 through September 16, 'Dinosaurs: Ancient Fossils, New Discoveries' is visiting the Royal BC museum. From June 1 to September 3, the much anticipated 'Queen Elizabeth II by Cecil Beaton' will be featured.
Been here some 40 years ago. Fantastic then and still today. As a Canadian living abroad, I'd recommend this to anyone wishing a deeper insite into BC life.
Fabulous! We enjoyed this so much. We stayed at leas 4 hours and could have spent more time. I enjoyed seeing real Academy Award and Emmy statues, They also had some real gold medals. The staff was so nice and available.
The exhibits were outstanding.

enjoyed Viking special
We were on limited time with a day trip to Victoria from Seattle, so only had time for a short visit. We spent a couple of hours at the museum and it was a pleasant surprise for a small venue. Well equipped with a surprising amount of artifacts and the docent's were especially friendly and informative. Next time we come it will most certainly be a stayover of at least 1 night so we can see more of the beautiful area.
It was very interesting. The staff were helpful cause it was a bit confusing in some of the exhibits.
I will go back again
This tour was amazing!
The Royal BC Museum is well worth the ticket price. We only had a few hours but could have spent a whole day wandering through the exhibits.
excellent, and Victoria is beautiful
