Hop on down to the Royal BC Museum to get in on the Easter weekend fun


VICTORIA, BC — If you’re looking for something fun this Easter long weekend, let a visit to the Royal BC Museum and IMAX® Victoria be on your list of things to do.

Want to see the world this weekend without having to get on a plane? Don’t miss the chance to see the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition before it closes April 16. Highlighting the year’s best wildlife photos taken across the world, Wildlife Photographer of the Year has been a favourite amongst Royal BC Museum visitors for more than a decade. And don’t forget to stop by IMAX® Victoria for a screening of The Arctic: Our Last Great Wilderness, a perfect companion film to the exhibition, staring 2010 best photo runner-up and current National Geographic photographer, Florian Schulz.

Celebrating the 25th anniversary of its theatrical debut, IMAX® Victoria is hosting James Cameron’s Titanic, some 111 years after the sinking of the famed luxury cruise liner. Did you know Titanic won a record-setting 11 Academy Awards when it was first released in 1997? Or that Jack’s scandalous sketch of Rose was actually done by none other than James Cameron himself? Newly remastered in 3D, it will be like you’re seeing it for the very first time. On for a limited time, Titanic runs April 7 to 27. 

Also on-site for a limited time is the Haq and History panel exhibition in Clifford Carl Hall, free for all to enjoy. Celebrating the vibrant and diverse history of the Sikh community in Canada, this exhibition offers visitors the chance to reflect upon stories from and about South Asian Canadian immigrants, including work and home life and the importance of keeping cultural traditions alive.

Visitors are also encouraged to take advantage of the same-day upgrade and convert that day’s museum ticket into a Royal BC Museum membership for exclusive discounts and benefits for a full 12 months. Members who purchase, upgrade or renew anytime now through the end of April will also receive early bird pricing and receive two complimentary guest passes for the museum.
