“Wildlife Photographer of the Year”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

One of the many benefits on becoming a new Canadian is getting the Cultural Access Pass. A must-see is the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition. Majestic, jarring, breathtaking.

“Educational....”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

I have been to other museums and nothing comes close. West Coast Native attraction is my favorite for sure. With so much to see it money well spent everytime I have visited. There is always something new to see as well as your favorites for times before. Check it out.

“Spectacular Exhibit of Photographs”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

The RBCM is the only venue in North America chosen to display this marvellous group of photographs selected from thousands submitted from around the world, each one worth a close examination. Many of the photographers are of professional calibre, but we were surprised and pleased to discover that some were in their teens and a few were less than ten years of age. Some photographs will make you sad, others will make you angry, and others will bring a smile to your face.

“Cool museum”
Reviewed February 12, 2013 via mobile

I like this museum most because they change their exhibits every once and a while. The native stuff is always there but this time around they had the wildlife photography of the year. Which had some pretty amazing pics. We showed up late hour an a half before closing so the entrance cost was half off:) it was a decent amount of time to graze through everything.
