The elaborate exhibits let you wander through time. From the rugged ice age to the refined cobblestone streets, you can walk in the footsteps of the original settlers and First Peoples.
Royal BC Museum Highlights
1. Totem Hall
This morning, the Victoria Buzz team had a special behind-the-scenes look at the @royalbcmuseum! As part of #emptyRBCM we got to run around the crowd-free exhibits. We even visited the labs and hidden vaults! Check out or webpage (link in bio) for a look at what's behind the exhibits! Photography by @itkasan_images
In the First Peoples Galleries, Totem Hall is the central exhibit. It features carvings from the six of the region’s original communities. Like a forest of towering totems, the poles vary in type and carving style.

3. Old Town
It took centuries for Victoria to become the modern city we know today. In fact, the capital’s origins were more muddy dockside streets than elegant hotels. But as the quaint harbor town evolved, the grand cobblestone stress and urban history did too. Wander through the Victoria of the late 1800s, where manual presses and the telegraph helped propel the city’s development.
