Come and experience the Royal BC Museum as you’ve never seen it. To celebrate the International Year of Biodiversity, we turn inside out and reveal the hidden world of our natural history staff through an interactive exhibition and family-friendly activities. Get to know the researchers who dig, dredge, dive and document their way to new scientific discoveries. See new and ancient specimens on public display for the very first time. And children will flip for the Amuseum – a museum just for kids – with its theme of sustainability!
“The Ultimate Wave Tahiti”
This exciting ride plunges audiences into the stunning beauty of an island paradise on a quest to find the perfect wave-riding experience. Nine-time world surfing champion Kelly Slater and Tahitian surfer Raimana Van Bastolaer and a group of friends seek out the best waves breaking on the reef at Tahiti’s famed surf site Teahupo’o. As their quest unfolds, the audience is plunged beneath the surface of things, to explore the hidden forces at work shaping ocean waves and the islands that lie in their path.
This perennial favourite returns this summer for the enjoyment of local patrons and visitors alike. Meet blue, orca, white whales and dolphins while following the humpbacks in their annual cycles of feast and famine as they travel thousands of miles from the krill blooms off the frigid coast of Alaska to calve in the warm waters of Hawaii. Featuring spectacular underwater footage of mothers, calves and escorts, Whales reveals many little-known aspects of these elusive creatures and celebrates the music, play and incredible strength of the earth’s largest inhabitants.
