I enjoy the museum and IMax, and look forward to their new exhibits. It's a bit pricey, which prohibits going often,but great when you get the chance

The fixed part of the museum keeps kids entertained for hours, the last few special exhibits have been set really well and incorporated some games for the children to learn through play

This was a fantastic event. It is too bad it is ending so soon. My son loved it and it was full of great information. I would highly recommend it to every age group.

World class museum. Rather than just presenting artifacts they re-create whole environments in depth which make the experience feel real.

Visiting the Royal BC Museum is always a treat!

We especially love their fall exhibits. Kids stay fully entertained with so much to see and learn.

And, finishing the day with an IMAX movie is never a dull time.

Growing up in Victoria, I've been to the Royal BC Museum many times and it's such a lovely way to spend a day. The IMAX is always a hit, and it's especially fun to spend a little extra and see a feature film on the giant screen.

One of my favourite times of year to go is the first week of January when it's admission by donation, and they have the exhibit "Wildlife Photographer of the Year" with some of the most stunning images from around the world on display. It's also a great time of year to have some indoor activities up your sleeve!

I love the Royal BC Museum. Ever since my girls were very young, we'd visit the Museum, check out the exhibitions, the natural history gallery, and the girls especially love wandering in old town. The IMAX is brilliant and its definitely a fun afternoon in the Fall and Winter visiting the Museum and IMAX together. And, makes for a fun date night too, much better than a Costco date night ... :^o
