Museums in British Columbia showcase a broad scope of history, interests, and passions—from the province’s Gold Rush past and rail travel history to its living Indigenous culture.

Take a step back in time at heritage sites like Barkerville in BC’s Cariboo and Fort Steele in the Kootenay Rockies. Explore impressive displays on a grand scale at Victoria’s Royal BC Museum, among others. Smaller community museums, like the Dinosaur Discovery Gallery in Tumbler Ridge, offer no less, thanks to a wealth of local artifacts, photos, stories, and more.
