Digital Field Trips

Can’t get here in person? No problem. If you have access to a computer with a camera, a wired high-speed internet connection, a large screen and sound, we can deliver a Digital Field Trip to you and your learners! Digital Field Trips are live, two-way, interactive virtual learning experiences. We can see and hear you, and you can see and hear us.

Digital Field Trips are inquiry based and staff led. We are here to support you and have pre and post visit materials available for most programs'. We can adapt Digital Field Trips for different grade ranges, home learners, or for adult, senior, community-group or post-secondary audiences. Contact us for more information. 

Programming Update

As of January 2, 2022, the third floor of the Royal BC Museum will be closed. This is an important step to modernize the Royal BC Museum and include more of the voices and lived experiences of the communities and peoples that make up British Columbia.

In order to update existing programs and develop new programs that can be delivered outside of the closed galleries, we will not be offering most Digital Field Trips until late February 2022. The notable exception is the Orcas Digital Field Trip, which will continue to be offered on Tuesdays from January to March.

New program descriptions will be launched and open for requests starting Monday, January 31, 2022. Our new program season begins Tuesday, February 22, 2022.
