Engagement Events

Important conversations are underway at the Royal BC Museum as we embark on province-wide engagement to reimagine the future of your museum and archives. With your help, we can ensure people from all corners of the province feel welcomed, included, and represented through community connections, educational programs, and inclusive, thought-provoking experiences for everyone.

Updating our aging facilities and infrastructure is a critical part of reimagining the museum and archives, but so too is rethinking our methods and processes. It’s a significant task. Reimagining the museum requires fiscal responsibility, enormous creativity, and, above all else, an approach that welcomes and includes the perspectives of all people in British Columbia.

We welcome your ideas, your feedback, and your voice.

Ways to Participate

Information Sessions

In these virtual sessions, we will share information about how you can add your input to create a reimagined museum, answer questions you may have about the process and share information about our engagement work. Registration is now open. We hope to see you there.

Community Conversations

Community conversations are an opportunity to gather with your community for a focused conversation on how a reimagined Royal BC Museum could better serve and represent people living across BC. These interactive sessions will be facilitated and offered virtually and in-person in various locations throughout the province.

Registration is now open for some events. Additional sessions will be made available for registration as they are confirmed. Please check back for updates. We hope to see you there.

Interactive Tours

Re-imaging Your Museum Interactive Tours: Buildings and Spaces

Join us for a 30–40 minute walking tour to dive deeper into the key theme of buildings, spaces and facilities and the various options for the physical downtown museum site. During this interactive tour we will go behind the scenes, answer any clarifying questions, and discuss the infrastructure challenges and opportunities facing the provincial museum. This tour takes place both indoors and doors so please dress accordingly. Note that this tour goes behind-the-scenes and may be challenging for those with accessibility needs. Please let us know at sign-up so we can answer any questions.

Tours are limited to 10 people. Sign up begins 30 min prior to the tour start time at the Information booth on the second floor.

We hope to see you there!
