Now, before you think that Abby's family were being cheap, they chose this motel for a reason.  The singer Nelly Furtado used to work here.

Today we are back at the Royal BC Museum to see the BC 150 special exhibit.

These 'postcards' were on the walls all over the exhibit.

There were a couple people in costume who were telling stories and singing songs of miners and people searching for gold.  This man was telling us about a man who owned a mine who carried his employees through the Depression.

An aboriginal canoe

This teddy bear is over 100 years old!  Probably a little to delicate to become a toyvoyager.

Some examples of aboriginal clothing

The piece of gold in this case is worth $50000!

There was a little bit of information about Emily Carr.

This is what the chief of police used to wear.  Things have sure changed.

There was a display similar to the one outside the museum, only it was circular, of famous British Columbians.  How many can you recognize?

This is a Kermode bear, BC's official animal.  It is only found in a small part of BC and is endangered.

These things belonged to people who were famous in early BC.  The jacket belongs to Colonel Moody, who was an engineer and founded the city where the original end of the Canadian Pacific Railway was, before it was extended to Vancouver.  The picture towards the left and the wig are and belonged to Judge Begbie, BC's first judge.

This is the document proclaming British Columbia as a colony.

After the exhibit, we checked out what else was on that floor.  There was a small, but very informative exhibit on climate change in the area.  Then it turned into the ice age.

After that there were displays on local wildlife.

There was a lot more museum to check out, but we had already spend three hours there and it was time to leave.
