Museums in Victoria cut a wide swath through British Columbia's history.
Step back in time at the Royal BC Museum, where life-like galleries transport visitors past a woolly mammoth and down a cobbled street in Old Town. Take a lesson in nautical history at the hands-on Maritime Museum of British Columbia.
For a look at the past, visit Helmcken House, Emily Carr House and Craigdarroch Castle, which all preserve daily life in the 1800s.
Within easy reach of Victoria are the Sooke Region Museum and BC Aviation Museum in Sidney. Clamber up a historic lighthouse at the former, then imagine aircraft humming along at the latter.
Visitor Centres have information on local museums and historic sites. Check the hours of operation for museums, as they may vary according to season.
