One of the best museums I have been to in a long time. The Egypt exhibit was very well put together & informative. We had a little trouble at first using the map to orient ourselves.

The First Nations portion of the exhibit is fantastic, especially if you're a tourist with no knowledge. The language section was very interesting. Spent 4.5 hours there and still didn't quite manage to see everything.

Enjoyed the afternoon, lots of Province artefacts. Shame it’s so expensive to enter. But reasonable value for money.

After a whale watching day, passing by Museum noted that on Saturday it's open till 10.00 pm. Excellent idea, veered immediately into museum. The special exhibit on Egypt was surprisingly nice, with artifacts coming from European Museum.
The interactive way it's presented is way better than the boring exhibitions in Europe, and that's specially good for pupils
Kudos to organizer of special event.
Stepping into the natural history you have an insight of Canadian fauna and environment, and how endangered it may become.
I wanted to see in detail the section devoted to First Nations and WOW, I do commend this section to anybody interested in history of First Nations and First People.
Very well detailed, artifacts, reconstruction, you are brought back into time.
Thanks, excellent collection and exhibition!

I love museums, my wife doesn't You can imagine the pickle that puts us in. Worry no more--she loves this museum. It does a great job of putting you into BC's history: from the docks to the towns to the gold rush. You're immersed. Well worth a visit.
