Learned a lot about the history of British Columbia. It was very informative and a great place to get away from the heat.

Really enjoyed walking through the museum and caught a couple good IMAX movies. There is an old heritage house that you can see beside the museum too. Oldest house in BC I believe. Learn the history of British Columbia, how it developed. Very nice!
