Royal BC Museum’s travelling exhibit Gold Mountain Dream! is on now through to February 24, 2018 at the Greater Vernon Museum & Archives. Gold Mountain Dream! – created by the Royal BC Museum in collaboration with the Canadian Museum of History – tells the personal stories and sacrifices of Chinese migrants in the 1850s as they landed on British Columbia shores in search of gold. It is a fascinating account of adventure, heartbreak and social upheaval.
Visit the museum and see how the gold rush not only changed the landscapes and lives in BC, but how this monumental event changed China, as people flocked to a rugged land in search of fortune. Admission is by donation.
