The Royal BC Museum is one of Canada’s greatest cultural treasures. It is the provincial museum and archives for the province of British Columbia.
The Collections and Research Building Project involves the designing and building of a new facility on a 3.2-hectare (eight acre) property at the Royal Bay development in Colwood. The Collections and Research Building will house Royal BC Museum’s collections, research departments and the BC Archives. The new state-of-the-art facility will use environmental controls to better preserve and protect the collections.
The Transportation Investment Corporation is delivering the project on behalf of the Province. The Province expects to break ground in 2022 and open to the public in 2025.
