Learn more about government’s intention to modernize the museum to protect our historic holdings and provide better access to our collections.
The museum and archives is gathering BC’s pandemic stories in real time and hopes to build a longer-term collecting project to capture this legacy. We want to hear from you. What do you think should be collected, and how do you think BC communities will want to remember this historic time?
We’re collecting perspectives, photos, videos and mementoes that will help tell the story of this moment for future generations. (But don’t send us objects—we, like most of you, are working remotely, so we can’t accept material items quite yet.)
Please contribute via our online submission form. Tell us what you think should be captured for the future.
What do you think will best tell generations to come who we were, what we lived through and what we experienced in our homes, at school, at work and in the great outdoors?
We may be staying apart, but let’s use this as an opportunity to stay connected.
We thank everyone for their contributions, questions and insights. The Royal BC Museum reserves the right to decide whether or not any materials or perspective you share will be included in its permanent collection at its own discretion.
