Gold Fever

Gold Fever in IMAX®

Gold Fever takes the audience on a glittering trip around the world, focusing on the cultural, economic and historical significance of the “eternal element”.

From the historical Klondike gold rush to a contemporary prospector exploring for gold from a helicopter, Gold Fever takes the audience to such exotic locations as Thailand to show the 60-foot reclining gold Buddha; to India to see Amritsar’s Golden Temple, the holiest shrine of the Sikhs and a festival attended by a million Hindu celebrants and 30 elephants adorned in elaborate gold headdresses; to Ghana’s Gold Coast to view a Royal Durbar festival held in honour of the crew.

Gold Rush

Gold Rush! El Dorado in BC

In 1858 word of gold rang out in the Fraser Canyon, starting a dramatic movement of people to what were largely unexplored regions of BC.

Through interactive displays and rare artifacts, this fascinating exhibition will show you how everything changed forever with the gold rushes of the 1800s, as class and racial barriers were broken down and people seized the extraordinary opportunities that glittered before them.

We delve into the passions roused by the alluring ore and tell this important chapter of history from a strikingly global perspective – the exhibition includes Allure of Gold from the Museo del Oro in Bogota, Colombia.
