Can you choose your family? Or is it determined by blood? This is the central question of the Royal BC Museum’s newest feature exhibition, Family: Bonds and Belonging, open June 2 to October 31, 2017. The story of family is told through rarely seen treasures, albums, portraits and costumes that illustrate how belonging is more than tradition, habit or prejudice.

The exhibition explores the positive and negative aspects of family; the joy and the pain that these bonds can elicit. On this journey, delve into your own idea of family, learn about others and discover tools to begin your own genealogical research.
