    This museum has some of the best displays of Aboriginal artifacts I have seen. It's all presented from a focus around BC, and the environmental section goes into a lot of detail about the area.

    The museum is amazing! Make sure you have at least a couple of hours to see everything. We only had one and a half and that was nowhere near enough.

    The tickets let you walk in. And out all day - you should consider booking high tea at The Empress across the street.

    If you visit the Victoria Butterfly Gardens first, you might be able to get free kids passes for entry to the museum; be sure to ask!

    This museum is a 'must see'. incredible attention to detail. The exhibits literally teleport you back in time!

    Check out the Natural History exhibits. The woolley mammoth and forest exhibits are particularly surreal and should not be missed. Read more

    Um dos museus mais legais que conheci! Vale a pena a visita! A parte que mostra a história da BC é muito legal, reprodução das casa, lojas e ruas da época, é uma viagem no tempo!
