    The wife and I came just to see the Viking exhibit. The IMAX theatre was just like others we've been in, but the Viking movie wasn't in 3D. A shame as that would've of made it even more impressive. As far as the Viking display, there were a lot of reproductions. The rest of the Museum was pretty darn good and reminded me of Disney sets. The day we visited there were a lots of school kids working on reports. Not a problem as we like to hear their excitement as they look for interesting items.
    I'm glad we came before the exhibit moved on.

    We love coming here and it's great for my kids to learn new things and not just buried in their iPads. Also the place has dining options aside from the learning experience of natural history. A half day stay should be fine, if you have more time, take the entire day.

    An absolutely stunning museum. Exceptional venues that rotate through on a regular basis (the most recent was a Viking exhibit which was excellent). Also caught an IMAX film as well, which apparently is the largest screen in BC. Definitely worth stopping by

    Great exhibits, friendly staff, but the hours are frankly useless. needs to be open so that people with day jobs still have a chance to go. Maybe a half price after 5 and open till 8:30 sort of deal

    We went to Vancouver Island long ago and embraced the historical exhibits of the Royal BC Museum but did not like the hefty admission fees. If you are a tourist or a resident of Vancouver Island, the biggest downfall to tourism is going over on their costly ferry boat commute that hurts tourism and is a turnoff. Check out Minature World, Bug Zoo, Victoria Underground Aquarium and others. BC Ferries suck travellers while giving their management team insane wages instead of culling salaries and perks to make it more affordable. Greed....
