Islanders will be able to access another low-cost source of entertainment this summer with half-price admission at the Royal BC Museum.

The BC Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture announced on Tuesday that they would be offering the half-price admission until Sept. 7, 2020.

While visiting the museum for the announcement, Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture Lisa Beare said she was impressed with the safety measures in place at the museum to protect visitors.

“Now that we’re into Phase 3, I am encouraging British Columbians to explore the sights and attractions our province has to offer,” said Beare.

Safety measures at the Museum include booking tickets with timed entries to space out visitors and new signage and pathways for physical distancing.

The Museum’s galleries will be available on staggered dates as part of a phased plan to reopen.

The Wildlife Photographer of the Year and Natural History gallery reopened on June 19. On Aug. 1 the First Peoples gallery will reopen while the BC gallery reopens on Sept. 9.

The Royal BC Museum says that 3,500 people have passed through their doors since they reopened on June 19.
