Until 5 p.m. today, you can pick what you pay at the Royal B.C. Museum.

They’ve been accepting admission by donation for the past week, beginning Jan. 4.

Donations will go back to the museum, supporting exhibitions, research, and learning and outreach programs. Those who make it today can enjoy the interactive exhibit Our Living Languages: First Peoples’ Voices in BC. It celebrates the resilience and diversity of First Nations languages in BC.

Visitors can also enjoy The Natural History Gallery, First Peoples Gallery, Modern History Gallery and BC Archives on Display.

The next big exhibit at the museum will be Wildlife Photographer of Year. That runs Feb. 15 to Mar. 24.

You can find the Royal BC Museum at 675 Belleville Street.
