The new orca exhibit is amazing! It’s hard to plan with young kids, but we booked a time slot (covid restrictions) and made it work! Security was good with checking times and limiting capacity in... more »
The Royal BC Museum is one of the tourist destinations in Victoria that you simply must visit. You learn so much about Canada, and the history of British Columbia in particular. There are innumerable fascinating exhibits to see. Friendly staff are all around to help you out, and taking a tour provides even deeper insight. I simply don't have anything bad to say about this fantastic and very engaging exhibit. Highly recommend!
The Maya exhibit is super cool! I'm really glad I went to visit it! I really liked how there were little 3D models of many of the items, it's super helpful for the blind. It was also fun to be able to touch the model without harming the real version! I'm very glad that the museum is using technology in such an innovative way. If you haven't gone yet, I highly encourage you to do so!
