Worth the time, money and parking fees :)
I loved the Emily Carr exhibit and hope they do her life again. My favourite part is the Modern History Gallery.

This museum is a ,must for anyone visiting Victoria especially if you are traveling with kids. Be prepared to spend the better part of a day to really appreciate it. The lower level has many natural history and nature exhibits. The upper level is devoted to the history of BC. It is absolutely remarkable.

We spent all day here, could have spent a few hours more,but had to leave because they were closing at 5pm. The best museum I've ever been in...well worth the money.
