Admission By Donation: Royal BC Museum keeps holiday spirit alive
What a great gift to the community. As a way of thanking its supporters, the Royal BC Museum in Victoria, BC is continuing its New Year's tradition of offering admission by donation. Visitors are asked to "pay what they can" from Jan. 2-9, 2012.
Currently on view is the Wildlife Photographer of the Year. The new exhibition features more than 100 of the world's best nature photographs in 18 categories. They include Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year, Endangered Wildlife, One Earth and Photojournalist of the Year. The photos were selected from more than 41,000 international entries from 95 countries.
Holiday festivities continue at the Royal BC Museum, too. The streets of Old Town are still decked out in seasonal decor, welcoming visitors to a Victorian Christmas.
