Digital Field Trips

The Royal BC Museum is dedicated to providing a safe and welcoming space for all our visitors. We take our direction from provincial health authorities in order to provide the best support to our visitors and staff. We are suspending bookings on programming until further notice.  Please check back regularly for updates.  In the meantime continue to visit us digitally, we have programs for everyone. 

Can’t get here in person? No problem. If you have access to a computer with camera, wired high-speed internet connection, large screen and sound, we can deliver a Digital Field Trip to your classroom. Digital Field Trips are live, two-way, interactive virtual learning experiences. We can see and hear your learners and they can see and hear us.

They are inquiry-based, staff-led and can incorporate Historical Thinking Concepts, scientific methods and processes and First Peoples Principles of Learning. All Digital Field Trips include pre and post-visit support.

Digital Field Trips are open to any organization, including senior centres and post-secondary classes. Visit Distance Learning to learn more. 

How to Book

Digital Field Trips are available Monday through Friday, October through June. Programs are 45 minutes long. Cost is $120 per program, except gallery tours, which are $75 for a 30 minute tour. For optimum interactivity we suggest one group per booking (25 participants), maximum two groups (50 participants). See program descriptions below.
