Visiting Us

Museum Admission

Book online, don’t wait in line!

We’ve increased our visitor capacity. That means no more timed tickets! Museum day passes are once again only date-specific, not time-specific. You can come and go as you like on the day of your visit. We still recommend that all museum visitors (including members) book their tickets online before arriving at the museum to guarantee availability.

Any changes or disruptions to service at the BC Archives are communicated through the News and Service notes.

Physical Distancing

Please be mindful of others and practice physical distancing during your visit.


Transport-style wheelchairs are available for use within the museum on a first-come, first-served basis. These are available from the Box Office in the main lobby, and they are receiving enhanced cleaning measures. Wheelchair-accessible washrooms are located on every floor.

Health and Safety

Your health and safety are important to us. To ensure we are doing everything we can to make your visit enjoyable, we have introduced some new cleaning processes and procedures:

  • We have implemented enhanced cleaning measures for all high-touch areas. Washrooms are cleaned at least twice a day.
  • All front-of-house/point-of-sale positions feature dividers to ensure physical distancing.
  • All front-of-house staff have been provided with gloves and additional cleaning supplies.
  • To help us limit accidental physical contact, our Coat Check service is currently closed. Please leave all non-essentials in your vehicle or at home.
  • Hand sanitizer is available in public areas.
  • We indicate health procedures in all public washrooms. Please ensure you continue to follow proper hygiene protocols and wash your hands regularly.
  • Ventilation systems have been turned up to move more air through the museum.
  • If you are sick, please stay home. We look forward to you visiting when you are well again!

The museum is currently open daily from 10am – 6pm. Please be advised that the third floor galleries are closed. To see what exhibitions are open on-site, click here.
