The Royal BC Museum is extending its feature exhibition, Orcas: Our Shared Future, until March 31, 2022.

Inside the museum, the splashy showcase lets visitors immerse themselves in the world of killer whales through live-size orca replicas, Indigenous cultural objects, videos and interactive games.

Orcas: Our Shared Future opened in April, after being delayed for a year due to COVID-19, and had been slated to run until Jan. 9. Now, visitors will have a few more months to book their trips.

“The exhibition extension will allow museum visitors the opportunity to take a deep dive into the stories and science surrounding the orca, whether they are seeing the exhibition for the first time or returning to see it again,” Erika Stenson, vice-president of museum operations, said in a press release.
