Royal British Columbia Museum, Victoria: 33 reviews and 58 photos
This museum hosts three permanent galleries and an IMAX theatre.
The modern history gallery displays collections of artifacts of the 20th century such as typewriters, clothing, a Bryan Adams' concert announcement, etc. The next gallery is a replica of Victoria's streets of early 20th century including a hotel, a mude movie theatre (where you actually can sit down and enjoy a mude movie), a Chinatown, a house, etc. Everything well decorated as in those years.
The First People's gallery is a First Nations exhibit which has totem poles, masks, etc. and the natural gallery offers a climate change exhibition as well as real-size wildlife, the popular mammoth and displays the conditions and diverse geography of BC.
It also offers temporary exhibitions; by the time I was living there, it had an exhibition of Dinosaurs' bones.
Even though you can take picutres in the temporary and the natural exhititions, you can't in the modern history gallery (but if you're skilled enough, you can have some pictures taken!)
