Drink in history with admission by donation at the Royal BC Museum

Community Days at the Victoria museum run from Jan. 2 to 9, 2020

The popular admission-by-donation event returns to the Royal BC Museum (RBCM) this week.

During Community Days – Jan. 2 to 9, 2020 – the RBCM invites guests to reacquaint themselves with the museum as a ‘community hub of learning’.

Rediscover favourite exhibits and share museum stories with family and friends. Discover dinosaurs at the Wonder Sunday event or wander the wood-cobbled streets of Old Town, garlanded with traditional festive finery.

From Jan. 2 to 11, the museum’s letter-writing station is again set up in lobby on the the third floor from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Paper, pens, envelopes and stamps are supplied.

The free pocket gallery exhibit showcases Buster, B.C.’s new species of dinosaur discovered by Victoria Arbour, RBCM curator of paleontology, on display at the museum until Feb. 26.

The Royal BC Museum explores the province’s human history and natural history. The suggested donation for admission during Community Days is $5.
