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,

A worthwhile hour or more in an very pleasant environment while learning a lot at the same time. This is a place that must not be overlooked.

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!

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..
