For more than 130 years, the Royal British Columbia Museum and Archives has preserved and presented the province. From the glass cases of 1886 to the always-on digital archives of the present day, The Collectors tells the story of the museum and archives, a story of continuity and change, of quirks and curiosities, and of the fascinating characters and enduring themes that have shaped one of British Columbia’s most distinguished institutions.
