Three permanent exhibit galleries are available, after regular visiting hours, for private business or conference events. In the Natural History Gallery your guests can dine with a Woolly Mammoth, a grizzly bear or a sea lion looking on. The Modern History Gallery has Captain Vancouver's ship, a water wheel and a turn-of-the-century town, all perfect settings for entertainment and learning about the early days of British Columbia. The breathtaking First People's Gallery showcases majestic totems and First Nations artifacts. Feast on traditional BC foods with a modern twist while watching a First Nations' performance
