Another Reason to Visit Victoria

Posted in By yvonne
Looking for another attraction to see while you are visiting?  The Chateau Victoria is only 2 short blocks away from the Royal BC Museum that is a world class cultural venue and a must see when visiting Victoria.
Check out the museum’s newest exhibit - Our Living Languages: First Peoples’ Voices in BC.  This exhibit shows how resilient and diverse the 34 First Nations languages in BC are and how they are changing and surviving with the new generation.  Enjoy original First Nation’s artwork and interactive stations.

Another exhibit that is passing through and is here until November 11, 2014 is Vikings – Lives Beyond the Legend.  This exhibit has made it’s first North America stop at the Museum.  See how the Vikings lived in this interactive exhibit and have a look at rare artifacts that have never been shown outside of Scandinavia.
Check out Vikings: Journey to New Worlds at the IMAX Theatre.

 

 

So spend an afternoon (or a day!) wandering through history!
Your entry fee gets you access to both of these exhibits, as well as to the permanent collections.
