The Royal BC Museum is an excellent museum displaying vast amounts of information on both the human, and natural history of British Columbia and Vancouver Island.
All in all, the displays, pictures, and information are all relatively new and appear to be in good shape. The natural history exhibits funnel visitors through a well defined 1-way route, which I believe is a good thing. For the human history exhibits, there is a little more leeway to pick-and-choose where to go and what to see, which unfortunately, can result in you missing out on some displays if you're not paying attention.
The main, ever-changing feature exhibit when we visited was the Photographer of the Year winners. Sadly, we saved this for the second half of the day and ended up running out of time (unable to read the details and captions to each photograph)! Nonetheless, it was incredible!
After the museum proper closed, we hit up the IMAX theater for a 1-hour show, which I would also highly recommend!
This is one of the must-see things in the greater Victoria area! Check it out!
