Royal British Columbia Museum, Victoria Reviews

  • A favourite place of mine from childhood that I hadn't visited in 20+ years, it still ranks as one of the top experiential museums I've been to. I was shocked by the price and would definitely recommend setting aside at least four hours to give it a good go through. In the mid-seventies I went to school nearby and spent many hours wandering the exhibits, particularly the old town. The scope has increased significantly since then and I feel it's a well balanced mix of walk-through / be in exhibits and artifacts on display. If you've got the time and despite the price I highly recommend a visit.

  • Loved the Egypt exhibit. The RBCM has been a favorite spot all my life, since the 70's. Though I do miss the beautiful carved wood doors, curtain fountains and hand carved First Nations canoe that greeted visitors, I am happy with all the rest they have preserved. Thanks goes to all those behind the scenes who keep the exhibits looking wonderful. And to those who create the well thought of and laid out temporary exhibits.

  • Saw the Egyptian Exhibit. Fascinating and thorough. Kids loved it for a while. A little too much for young kids. Would be great if they had a school project to compete on the topic to keep them focused. Overall, very well done.

  • The part of the museum that remains the Same all year is very well done. British Columbia's natural history and some excellent exhibits about British Columbia's First Nations. As to the exhibit that changes periodically, they are always well done also but obviously depending on Personal Taste can be more or less interesting than the rest of the museum.

  • Went for the Egyptian exhibit, but checked out the rest as well. Did it in 2 hours, with time for a coffee break, however we didn't go through all the exhibits in detail. Seemed like the Egyptian exhibit was more models and displays than I expected, but it was still quite interesting. The other exhibits are well put together and lots for kids to enjoy. Worth the price of admission.
