We’re looking forward to welcoming you back to the Royal BC Museum. The museum is resuming operations and reopening in a thoughtful, phased way, informed by the advice of the public health authority and backed by science. Our teams have been working hard to ensure the safest conditions for our staff, volunteers, partners and visitors.
We’ve given the health and safety program the mammoth treatment. You will notice some changes the next time you visit. Please visit our website for more information on planning your next visit, our new hours and how our phased reopening will roll out.
