Travel with Me! Victoria BC: Part 2

Firstly, I wanted to thank the Royal BC Museum for allowing me to experience and review them. This is the first time I had a press pass and I was incredibly excited to finally visit.

Stepping in to this beautiful building, you can’t help but want to absorb new information and learn. I am a lover of museums, galleries and immersive experiences and this felt like all those things under one roof. Starting May 18th, they will be opening a new exhibit called “Egypt: The Time of Pharaohs”, which I would love to see. I have always been incredibly fascinated by ancient Egypt. It was under construction when we went there.

Heading up the escalator, our first stop was the Natural History Gallery. We learned about our Coastal Forest, The Seashore, The Ocean Station, The Ice Age, Climate and the Fraser River Delta.

Our next stop was Our Living Languages and the First Peoples Gallery. It is truly humbling to see the way the museum pays so much respect to the aboriginal/indigenous people.

Our final stop was the Modern History Gallery, it depicted the way the British changed the land with a full scale replica of the HMS Discovery. The details are very impressive!

We learned about our many industries including gold mining, logging, farming and more.

Next we stumbled upon “Old Town”, it’s incredibly beautiful, detailed and makes you truly feel like you are stepping back in time! The final stop was the Century Hall with all kinds of relics from the past.

This will most definitely not be the last time I visit and if you’re in Victoria, make it a must-see on your list!
