The Royal BC Museum’s public consultation continues until June 27.

Kelowna residents gathered yesterday at the city’s historic Laurel Packing House to talk about the Royal BC Museum’s modernization efforts.

About 20 people were in attendance at yesterdays forum, including a representative from the B.C. government’s ministry of tourism, arts and culture, and representatives of the museum itself.
