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