Royal BC Museum extends killer whale exhibit, implements vaccine requirement – Saanich News


If you haven’t had the chance to see the Orca exhibit at the Royal BC Museum yet, there is no need to cry about it just yet.

The Provincial Museum of Natural and Human History is extending its main exhibition, Orcs: Our Shared Future, until March 31, 2022.

Inside the museum, the glowing display case allows visitors to immerse themselves in the world of killer whales through life-size orca replicas, indigenous cultural artifacts, videos and interactive games.

Orcas: Our Shared Future opened in April, after being delayed for a year due to COVID-19, and was scheduled to last until January 9. Now visitors will have a few more months to book their trips.

“Expanding the exhibit will allow museum visitors to delve into the stories and science surrounding the killer whale, whether they’re seeing the exhibit for the first time or coming back to see it again,” Erika Stenson, vice president of museum operations, said in a press release.

Museums are not included in the list of places where proof of vaccination is required for entry. However, the Royal BC Museum is also home to an IMAX theater, which falls under the provincial proof of vaccination mandate.
