Museum Happy Hour: New Ways of Looking

Tired of the same old thing? Why not come to the Royal BC Museum after work and try something new!

Bring your friends the last three Thursdays in November for a casual evening at the museum. Enjoy drink and food specials while you lounge or explore the galleries and take part in an activity.

Use interactive technology to experience the Natural History gallery from a new perspective, by being among the first to try our new augmented reality app. You'll never see our Mammoth the same way.

Also during this Museum Happy Hour, listen to nine original soundscape compositions from the Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre's summer 2016 Acoustic Ethnography course. Recorded on location, these works also use archival sounds from the Bamfield Historical Society and sounds from the deep ocean collected by Ocean Networks Canada. Come and enjoy these soundscapes from above, below and beyond coastal BC.
