Die Museen von British Columbia bieten jede Menge Abwechslung: Kunsthandwerk der First Nations, Schifffahrtsgeschichte, Eisenbahnen, Cowboys, Goldrausch, Relikte aus der Goldgräberzeit, Dinosaurier, Toaster und landwirtschaftliche Geräte. Bleibt nur noch die Frage, womit man beginnen soll?

Größere Museen wie Vancouvers Museum of Anthropology und das Royal BC Museum in Victoria zeigen eindrucksvolle Ausstellungen über das Kunsthandwerk und die Kultur der First Nations. Kleinere Gemeindemuseen begeistern den Besucher mit einer Fülle regionaler Artefakte, Fotografien und Geschichten.

Im Canadian Museum of Rail Travel in Cranbrook erfahren Sie alles über Züge. Das Vancouver Maritime Museum informiert über die Erforschung der Arktis und Dawson Creek über den Bau des Alaska Highway.

Erkunden Sie die Vergangenheit in der Dinosaur Discovery Gallery in Tumbler Ridge und erfahren Sie im Haida Heritage Centre alles über die reiche Kultur der First Nations. Wildwest-Liebhaber kommen im Museum of the Cariboo Chilcotin voll auf ihre Kosten. Den Boom einer Goldrauschstadt erleben Besucher hautnah in Barkerville Historic Town und am Fort Langley National Historic Site erfahren Sie nützliches Hintergrundwissen zur Ära des Pelzhandels.

Einzigartige Museen locken mit weiteren Themen: mechanische Musikinstrumente (in Revelstoke) und sogar Toaster (in Stewart).
