This Halloween join us for an interactive evening inspired by all the things that go bump in the night. From the creepy-crawly to the downright terrifying, Nightmare at the Museum will show you a side of the Royal BC Museum you’ve never seen before. Join us as the Royal BC Museum comes alive with dancing, delicious drinks and bites, live local music, spooky ghost tours, haunted forests and diabolical decorations. This is a night you won’t soon forget…even if you want to.
Featuring music from Bučan Bučan, DJ Murge & DJ Boitano.
Find outfit inspirations from our Night Shift partner The Bay Centre*.
