    This is one of my favourite museums. The work inside is amazing. The attention to detail is remarkable. Much of the museum is interactive. A place to spend an entire day easily.

    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.

    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!

    The mammoth exception was fantastic but the rest of the museum seriously needs face lift...

    Get an annual membership for museum and/or IMAX. Totally worth it if you live in Victoria.

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

    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!
