Unexplored Highlights of the Royal BC Museum

You’ve heard rumours about some of our most fascinating artifacts and objects. This is your chance to see them – in an exclusive, informal setting – and learn more.

Join us on a four-part adult learning program as we dive deeply into our world-class collections of art, photography, First Nations, marine and terrestrial life, and much more, with the kind of access usually reserved for researchers and scientists.

Led by our expert staff, you’ll explore big ideas about the role of objects, the meaning of museum collections and the human experience of things.

Through intimate conversations, dynamic lectures and behind-the-scenes visits, this informal, often hands-on program will be a feast for the mind and senses.

Explore how museum pros consider the world in a creative space for deeper thinking, doing and learning.
