      Even though I live in the city, I love Victoria’s Royal British Columbia Museum. I always feel like I’m stepping into another world, be it the world of the Aboriginal people, or the world of the nineteenth-century settler, to say nothing of the natural history displays.

      I could honestly stay in the museum all day. Walking into the “Old Town”


      section is like taking a trip back in time. I love the old movie theatre, and the train station. All of this contributes to a feeling of actually being there, and for me, history comes alive. I forget where I am, and always find it strange to walk back into the rest of the museum, where the twenty-first ...

      • century continues as normal. I like how the displays play upon all the senses, especially sight, sound and smell.

        Another of my favorite exhibits is the “First Peoples’ Gallery”, which houses the First Nations artifacts. I love how mystical it feels, and I think the display techniques do justice to some of the amazing pieces that are housed within

        its walls. Rather than a cold, anthropological look at Native cultures, the Gallery attempts to display the pieces in a sensitive manner. More than once, I have felt in awe of the Gallery.

        I would certainly recommend that all visitors to the city schedule a lengthy stop in this museum, as it is definitely not one to be rushed through.
