Date Night at the Royal B.C. Museum

Cuddle up under a woolly mammoth or sneak a kiss in the shadow of Captain George Vancouver's ship HMS Discovery – it's all possible at a unique Valentine's Day event.

On Feb. 14, the best place to say I Love You to your Valentine is a candle-lit gallery at the Royal B.C. Museum. At this after dark event, couples can enjoy the work of the world’s best wildlife photographers while sipping from champagne flutes and nibbling hors d’oeuvres.

The evening begins at 7 p.m. on the second floor with a complimentary glass of sparkling wine and light snacks throughout the Natural History and Wildlife Photographer of the Year galleries. Guests are invited to explore the exhibitions and find their own “best place to hold hands.”

At 8:30 p.m. the third floor opens with its view of the city, romantic music, conversation tables and Valentine sweets, along with a cash bar. Couples can stroll through the First Peoples and Modern History galleries – by candlelight.

Tickets for Date Night at the Royal B.C. Museum are $20 per person, early registration and 10 per cent discount are available for members. Register by Friday (Feb. 10), adults age 19 and over only. Tickets are available online at www.royalbcmuseum.bc.ca or at the RBCM box office.
