In 1894, the Archives came into existence, and in a significant development in 2003, these two institutions merged to become British Columbia's comprehensive provincial museum and archives. Together, they diligently collect a diverse array of artifacts, documents, and specimens representing the natural and human history of British Columbia. Their primary mission is to safeguard these treasures for future generations and share the wealth of knowledge they hold with the global community. Their unwavering commitment revolves around deepening their understanding of the province and igniting curiosity and wonder among all who engage with their offerings. Notably, the Royal BC Museum welcomes millions of visitors annually in person and through its website. Visitors can experience the IMAX Victoria Theatre, which screens educational films and entertaining commercial content. Additionally, the museum extends a generous offer of free admission for children aged 3 to 5, ensuring that young minds have access to this invaluable cultural resource.

Spent a little over an hour here, could have stayed a lot longer if we had more time. Excellent exhibits with very interesting displays. The Old Town part was the most interesting, it will be nice when it is fully opened again. Most of the kids I saw were most interested in Old Town with one child screaming with excitement in the train station. The Angkor exhibit was very cool with real artifacts over a 1000 years old. I am not too interested in dinosaurs but the Sue exhibit was good. We will be back, thank you.
Was fantastic to revisit the museum as an adult after spending much time here as a youth. Excellent international feature exhibits and lots to relearn about the region we inhabit. Great IMAX theatre films also. My favourite has always been the Old Town exhibit; brings me right back to my childhood.
Great place to stop by! The current exhibits were really interesting seeing old Cambodian civilization. Exhibits of different animal ecosystems are very neat too!
