As a long time B.C. resident, visiting this place made me appreciate the province's history. The displays are very well labeled.

This is a historic site with demonstrations provided by individuals such as a blacksmith, etc. It is extremely educational and great for people of all ages.

This National Historic Site bills itself as the birthplace of British Columbia, though the folks on Vancouver Island would probably argue that point.
