Kim Gough

Acting Director of Audience Experience

Kim Gough came to the Learning Department of the Royal BC Museum in 2007 after 11 years of working in museums, heritage sites and interpretation centres in Alberta. She started her career as a costumed interpreter and went on to roles in school programming, special event co-ordination and site management.

Her work for the Royal BC Museum has included school programs, feature exhibitions, volunteer training, gallery interpretation and the development of a smartphone app. Now with a focus on outreach, Kim will develop more opportunities for people who cannot physically visit the museum to explore the collections, learn new skills and encourage dialogue and reflection.


Kim earned a Master of Museum Education from the University of British Columbia in 2017.
