The Robert Bateman Centre features floor to ceiling windows with ocean front views of Victoria’s Inner Harbour. The Centre is across the street from the Parliamentary Buildings of British Columbia and within walking distance of Victoria’s downtown core. The space is made up of one central gallery (61’ x 17’) with eight adjoining galleries.
