Royal BC Museum presents Gold Rush: El Dorado in BC
To October 31
Royal BC Museum, Victoria
Starting May 13, 2015 witness this fascinating era of history come to life again with Gold Rush! El Dorado in BC.
Interactive displays and rare artifacts showcase the impact of the gold rush, as class and racial barriers were broken down and people seized the extraordinary opportunities that glittered before them.
Visitors can marvel at the dazzling Turnagain Nugget, the largest existing gold nugget from BC at 1,642g (52 oz.), see a real stagecoach on loan from the Historic O’Keefe Ranch, and witness the cultural influences of gold through the Bill Reid gold box, just a sampling of the more than 400 objects on display.
Gold Rush! includes the exclusive North American engagement of Allure of Gold, a companion exhibition of pre-Hispanic gold art, on loan from the Museo del Oro in Bogotá, Colombia. This remarkable collection showcases the central role this sacred metal occupied in the life of indigenous people in Colombia. This will be the only opportunity in North America to see these objects together, some of them on tour for the first time outside Colombia.
Also on display: the Guinness World Record-holding million dollar coin from the Royal Canadian Mint, May 13 to June 14 only.
