Royal British Columbia Museum

Totem Poles inside the museum

While thinking of similarities of the place that I found in Alberta and British Columbia province in Canada, I realized that Victoria is the capital city of BC. In Edmonton there is Provincial Legislature Building and Victoria has it as well, Edmonton has Royal Museum and Victoria has it as well. Edmonton is capital city of Alberta and that’s what Victoria is in BC.

As part of my tour, after whale watching activity, we visited BC Royal Museum.

Here are some of photos I captured during my visit in the museum and some learned information during the tour.
