Events have Ice Age theme at Royal BC Museum in Victoria

Tunes, tales and a sleepover are planned in September.

VICTORIA — The Royal BC Museum is planning events with an Ice Age theme in September.

On Saturday, Sept. 3, visitors to the Modern History galleries will be serenaded by the melodies of Scott Joplin and contemporary artists with a live musical performance on a 1916 player piano.

The demonstration will be from 2 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. by the train station in Old Town.

From 2:45 p.m. to 3 p.m., an actress will portray Alma Rattenbury as she tells her side of the story in “Rattenbury: A Tale of Murder, Adultery and Scandal in Old Town” in front of the saloon.

On Wednesday, Sept. 7, a free program, “Live at Lunch: Species at Risk Travelogue,” is planned from noon to 1 p.m. in the Community Room adjacent to the Sequoia Café in Clifford Carl Hall.

The Living Languages exhibition tours, cedar-weaving and bent (paper) box-making activities run until Sept. 5.

During the annual sleepover, set this year for Saturday, Sept. 24, patrons can arrive at 6:30 p.m. to spend the Night at the Museum.

They will explore the “Mammoths! Giants of the Ice Age” exhibit without the crowds, go on a midnight behind-the-scenes tour and wake up with morning yoga. Tickets are $80, with a 10 percent discount for members.
