Delphine Castles

Modern Human History Collections Manager

Delphine Castles came to the Royal BC Museum in 2007 after working for almost three decades in various cultural institutions.

Many childhood hours spent at the Provincial Museum in Victoria nurtured her awareness and enthusiasm to pursue a museum-focused career. Much of Delphine’s academic education is in museum studies, with the completion of an MA in museum studies in 2006 from the University of Leicester in England.

She is responsible for inventory control and management of the modern human history collection, which involves the hands-on categorization of man-made objects relevant to their history of use in British Columbia.
