“Wish I had had more time”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

One day wasn't enough. The exhibits were so well done. Great for all ages. I felt that I had to really rush through them because I also wanted to go to the IMAX to see the movie about the Rocky Mountaineer Train.

This is my favourite attraction in Victoria. I really enjoy all aspects of this museum. You can see the staff have a lot of pride in their work. Always enjoy the special exhibits.

“Great exhibits”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

The dinosaur exhibit was pretty interesting. The permanent native exhibit, mammoth exhibit and the indoor city created to replicate the olden times are pretty amazing! Definitely worth a visit if you have time. Walk down the memory lane or learn something new about Canadian History! It will capture the attention of both young and old... I would visit again in a few years :)

“Dino”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

This place is amazing for all ages. You can always look forward to a great Imax movie or a walk through the exibits. Everytime I go through I learn something new. It's worth seeing if you have a couple of hours to tour it.
