Becoming BC Gallery

One of the core mandates of a museum is to preserve history, and sometimes it means preserving our own. We truly recognize and appreciate the important place that this gallery has held at the Royal BC Museum, and in peoples’ hearts, and we are happy to share this experience and make it accessible digitally for even more people to enjoy. Understanding our past, helps guide a positive future.
