We spent about 3 hoiurs in the museum but could have spend quite a bit more. It is very well done and worthwhile to see. After our time at the museum, we went to the IMAX show,

“One of the best attractions in the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

I've visited the museum many times and it is always interesting and fun. My favourite is the Old Town section, where you feel as if you've stepped back in time. So much attention has been put in the details and there is so much to see. Guaranteed worthwhile visit!

“A Must View in Victoria”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

Excellent exhibits documenting the history of British Columbia. Often has special exhibits highlighting varied topics such as Egyptian culture and the Pharaohs The
attached IMAX Theater is also well worth the visit. Several shows play during the day and shows also repeat so if you miss one you want to see, it will likely be on later in the day. Very easy to spend the entire day here with the family between the museum and IMAX..

“Excellent museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

Not your average boring museum. Excellent permanent exhibits and the travelling exhibits that are in for 4 months or so are always interesting and entertaining. Well worth a visit for visitors to our little piece of paradise we know as Victoria and for residents on a regular basis.
