VICTORIA — Prepare for a blast from the past.
The Old Town gallery is getting reintroduced to the Royal BC Museum (RBCM) on July 29.
The exhibit will feature the garage, train station, hotel, saloon, parlour, kitchen, print shop and Chinatown preserved as they once were, states a news release.
Other spaces such as the drapery shop have been emptied out for a reimagined perspective.
The Old Town reopening is the first phase of a long-term transformation taking place at the RBCM.
“Old Town is beloved by hundreds of thousands of visitors. I know people miss it, are passionate about it and want access to it. We have heard you,” said Lana Popham, minister of tourism, arts, culture and sport, in the release.
