Mystery Objects

This gallery includes eight different items. Some of them are objects from our human history collection, and some of them are photographs of animals in our natural history collection. The first time you see the object it won’t be identified. Can you guess what it is? What do you think it is used for? Is it natural or human made? Find out what it is by clicking to the following image in the gallery.

Please feel free to use these images to educate and inspire in your classrooms.  Should you wish to use them for any other purposes, please contact the Royal BC Museum and Archives at 250-387-1952 or access@bcarchives.bc.ca
