Royal BC Museum Modernization

The Royal BC Museum is one of BC’s greatest cultural icons, drawing millions of visitors each year onsite and online. It offers visitors the chance to explore our social and environmental history and discover the events and people that have shaped our province.

On Feb. 12, 2019, the speech from the throne announced government’s intention to modernize the Royal BC Museum, to protect its historic holdings and provide better access to its collections. 

Staff from the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture and the Royal BC Museum will be engaging with British Columbians between April 1 and June 27, 2019. They look forward to hearing from people from all over BC. The feedback received will be used as input into recommendations that will be developed in Fall 2019. ​
