The Royal BC Museum is dedicated to providing a safe and welcoming space for our visitors. As the COVID-19 situation evolves, the museum is committed to understanding the facts and ensuring we respond appropriately.  We have made the difficult decision to close the Archives Reference Room until further notice in order to comply by social distancing. We will still be providing services through our digital channels including our archives collections search.

At this time, please contact us through email at and we will do our best to facilitate your request.
