I can still remember the first time I visited the Royal B.C. museum as a child; standing, awestruck, in front of the life sized woolly mammoth for the first time still holds a vivid place in my memory. Because of this, I knew that a visit to the museum was one of the first things I wanted to do on our family trip to Vancouver Island.
Walking into the Royal B.C. Museum really does feel like you are stepping back in time. The museum houses an impressive array of authentic artifacts, which are displayed in highly realistic settings, making visitors feel like they are experiencing another time and place.
