The Pocket Gallery

The Pocket Gallery is a small display space in Clifford Carl Hall, on the main floor of the Royal BC Museum. 

The gallery showcases the little-seen behind-the-scenes work of the Royal BC Museum. 

Featured displays are great opportunities for visitors to see how individual staff members explore innovative, provocative and sometimes revelatory ideas, drawing on collections, research, partnerships and programmes that you might otherwise know very little about.  

Pocket Gallery displays change regularly, as Royal BC Museum professionals continually pitch fresh ideas and focus on new projects.  Access to the Pocket Gallery is free to all visitors.  

The Pocket Gallery is proudly supported by
