Organization Description

The Royal BC Museum (RBCM) was established in 1886, making it one of the oldest continually operating museums in Canada. By exploring our human history and natural history, the Royal BC Museum advances new knowledge and understanding of British Columbia, and provides for a dynamic forum for discussion and a place for cultural reflection.
The RBCM, which includes the provincial archives, is undergoing modernization. Modernization is a complex, transformational process that not only impacts the museum’s physical presence and facilities, but also requires the museum team to undergo adaptive and technical organizational changes.
