Gold Rush! Eldorado in BC

South Vancouver Island

Wed. May 13th, 2015 – Thu. October 8th, 2015 10:00am - 5:00pm

Catch gold fever!

In 1858 word of gold rang out in the Fraser Canyon, starting a dramatic movement of people to what were largely unexplored regions of BC.

Through interactive displays and rare artifacts, this fascinating exhibition will show you how everything changed forever with the gold rushes of the 1800?s, as class and racial barriers were broken down and people seized the extraordinary opportunities that glittered before them.

We delve into the passions roused by the alluring ore and tell this important chapter of history from a strikingly global perspective – the exhibition includes Allure of Gold from the Museo del Oro in Bogota, Colombia.
