Museums in British Columbia have collections for all passions and interests: Aboriginal art, maritime history, railways, cowboys, gold rush relics, dinosaurs, toasters and farming equipment.

Large museums, such as Vancouver's Museum of Anthropology and Victoria's Royal BC Museum, are home to impressive displays of Aboriginal art and culture. Smaller community museums are bursting with a wealth of local artifacts, photos and stories.

Learn about trains at the Canadian Museum of Rail Travel in Cranbrook, Arctic exploration at the Vancouver Maritime Museum or the building of the Alaska Highway at Dawson Creek.

Explore the past at the Dinosaur Discovery Gallery in Tumbler Ridge and discover Aboriginal culture at Haida Heritage Centre. The cowboy lifestyle is on display at the Museum of the Cariboo Chilcotin, a gold rush boomtown comes to life in Barkerville Historic Town, and the fur trade era is preserved at Fort Langley National Historic Site.

There are also some unique museums: mechanical musical instruments (in Revelstoke) and even toasters (in Stewart).
