The following is partially excerpted from a release issued by the Royal BC Museum.
British Columbians are invited to share their ideas for a modernized Royal BC Museum as the province moves forward with planning to preserve B.C.’s natural and human history for generations to come.
“The Royal BC Museum is one of B.C.’s greatest cultural icons, drawing hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. It offers people the chance to explore our social and environmental history and discover the events and people that shape our province,” said Lisa Beare, Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture. “We know how important the museum is to people in B.C., and that’s why we are moving forward with plans to modernize and protect this irreplaceable collection. I’m looking forward to hearing people’s views on what a modern, accessible provincial museum could be.”
Between April 1 and June 27, people can share their ideas for the future of the Royal BC Museum, either online or in person. Regional public meetings will be held in May and June in Victoria, Vancouver, Kelowna, Prince George, Terrace, Fort St. John and Cranbrook. Check back for dates and locations.
