Books, Victoria: 11 reviews and 12 photos


Munro's is the best place in Victoria for books! Their staff is extremely knowledgeable and they have an amazing selection of books on every subject. Don't miss their great collection of cards and calendars as well. Pick up some cards by local artist Robert Amos (who paints Victoria street scenes) and grab one of their hard-to-find magazines from around the world! Very reasonable prices with excellent sales on the tables in the center of the store.

Munro's is located in a heritage building right on Government Street, across from the Bay Center. The building is rumoured to be haunted, but the only magical things I've seen are the staff when they dress up for the release of the new Harry Potter books! The eight fabric banners on the walls were made by the owner's ex-wife, Carole Sabiston.
