Although the Royal BC Museum is geared toward the province of British Columbia, it is considered one of the foremost cultural institutes in the world. A combined museum and archives, the RBCM has an enormous amount of artifacts in its collections, which focus on conservation, human history and natural history. The permanent galleries include the First Peoples Gallery, Modern History Gallery and Natural History Gallery. Hands-on programs are available for kids, in particular, a summer camp program. RBCM has an onsite IMAX theatre, a shop, and café.
