The museum displays a very nice exhibition on the history of BC and also some real interesting exhibitions on first people. A must see for everyone visiting Victoria!

“An Outstanding Museum”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

I've visited this museum numerous times and always enjoyed it. There is an IMAX theatre there as well as exhibits which change several times a year. My favorite, however, is the third floor recreation of a street in Victoria from the 1890s or so. So well done! Be sure to visit when you're in town.

Excellent exhibits in July 2012 on First Nations people with artifacts dating back 9,000 years, as well as photos of Queen Elizabeth II on her 60th jubilee.
