Royal BC Museum to host mammoth exhibition

The museum presents the rare opportunity to see a larger-than-life exhibition

There’s just enough time to catch gold fever before the Royal B.C. Museum’s Gold Rush! El Dorado in BC ends Oct 31.

The Fishbowl is Victoria’s own flavour of Dragon’s Den at the museum, Nov. 8; visit with Father Christmas in Old Town, have your photo taken and share your holiday wishes Dec. 4 to 6, 11 to 13, and 18 to 20; International Mother Languages Day examines the diversity of First Nations languages in BC, Feb. 21; catch the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibit, Dec. 4 to April 4.

From June 1 to Dec. 31, the museum presents the rare opportunity to see the larger-than-life exhibition, Mammoths: Giants of the Ice Age. With a rich collection of fossils, preserved flesh, media and engaging interactives created by The Field Museum in Chicago, will transport visitors to a time when giants walked among us.
