Royal B.C. Museum Offers Admission by Donation

The Royal B.C. Museum is offering visitors admission by donation from Jan. 2 ‐ 9, visitors are asked to pay‐what‐they‐can.

“This is our way of saying thank you and Happy New Year,” says Royal BC Museum Acting CEO Faye Zinck. “Visiting during admission‐by‐donation week has become a tradition with many families; we see them each year at this time.”

This will also be the last opportunity for visitors to experience Aliens Among Us, the Royal BC Museum exhibition on British Columbia’s invasive species which closes January 9. The Behind the Scenes exhibition, a fascinating glimpse behind the scenes of our natural history collections, continues into the new year.

Holiday festivities continue at the Royal BC Museum – the streets of our Old Town are decked in the season’s finest, welcoming visitors to experience an old‐fashioned Victorian Christmas.

As the provincial museum and archives, the Royal BC Museum preserves and shares the stories of British Columbia – on‐site, off‐site and online – through its research, collections, exhibitions and educational programs. Its two‐hectare cultural precinct also includes a number of historically significant buildings and First Nations sites.
