I have lived in Victoria for 40+ years, and I still love this museum!! You can spend all day and learn so much. They have different feature exhibits and they are always top notch! I would highly recommend it!

This is an exceptionally well designed exhibit. On display is an almost completely preserved woolly mamouth baby...it is hard to believe. Children will enjoy learning about evolution when they see these displays. adults will enjoy it too! There was another exhibit about native languages that are being saved. The other exhibit is about BC history with great realistic displays. And then here are the amazing totem poles outside.

Only had time to do BC history and some First Nations and we were very entertained. Nice dioramas and exhibits. Just a peek at the Mammoth exhibit, would have liked to do more. Definitely worth a visit when in Victoria!

The Royal BC Museum is a museum that appeals to people of all ages and interests. The permanent exhibit offers excellent insight on life, language, history of the First Nations, nature, animals, and general history of British Columbia. Children love to visit the quaint little streets, with the cinema and old stores.
The temporary visits are always interesting and worth an extra ferry ride if you don't live on the island. Make sure to visit the Imax theatre where visitors have a choice of different movies, of an average of 45 minutes. A visit to this Museum will leave a lasting impression and deserves to be repeated on a regular basis!
