FEATURE EXHIBITION

Terry Fox: Running to the Heart of Canada

April 12 – October 1, 2017

Celebrate the achievements of one of Canada’s greatest heroes–Terry Fox.

At the age of 18 Terry Fox lost part of his right leg to bone cancer. The loss didn’t diminish his drive or courage; in fact, it inspired greatness. Once he recovered, this young man from Port Coquitlam, BC set out to run across Canada in what he called a “Marathon of Hope” to raise money for cancer research. In the summer of 1980 Terry began his 143-day, 5,300 kilometre journey, starting in St. John’s, Newfoundland. His plan had been to run across the country.  Sadly Terry's cancer returned and he was forced to finish his run in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Terry Fox still succeeded in his goal of raising awareness of and money for cancer research–a legacy that continues to this day. Explore the story of a young man who inspired a nation and established himself as a hero through his courage, hope and determination.

British Columbia Remembers: The Great War

the great war 2

August 4, 2014 marked the centenary of Britain’s declaration of war against Germany. As a member of the British Empire, Canada was automatically at war and British Columbians enlisted enthusiastically – 55,570 of them served in the 620,000-strong Canadian Expeditionary Force. To mark the anniversary of the Great War (1914–18), the Royal BC Museum begins its recognition with an installation in Clifford Carl Hall called British Columbia Remembers: The Great War.

The installation will evolve over the next four years. Currently it features four video montages of British Columbian recruits training, drilling and marching before departing for the war in Europe. The raw footage, shot on 35mm cellulose nitrate stock, was painstakingly stitched together by archivist Dennis Duffy. Period music selections augment the montages.

Installation Dates: On now until Fall 2019.
