Victoria invited to share ideas on Royal BC Museum modernization

Victoria invited to share ideas on Royal BC Museum modernization

June 6, 2019 at 7:51 am  BC, News, Politics

People in Victoria and surrounding areas are invited to attend community meetings and share their ideas about the future of the Royal BC Museum.

The B.C. government is committed to modernizing the Royal BC Museum, to protect its historic holdings and provide better access to its collections. As part of the process, the government is gathering people’s feedback through community meetings and an online forum.

The government is engaging with Indigenous peoples and citizens throughout B.C. to hear their views about what they expect a modernized museum experience to be. The government is also seeking feedback about how the museum could most effectively tell stories of B.C.’s communities and how the museum can collaborate most productively with communities around the province.

There are three community meetings for the southern Vancouver Island region: two in Victoria and one in Duncan. The meetings will feature welcome from a local Indigenous Elder and provincial government representative, and a group discussion.

The Royal BC Museum holds the world’s largest collection of B.C. heritage. It offers visitors the chance to explore the province’s social and environmental history and discover the events and people that have shaped B.C.
