Museum of Anthropology - Vancouver

by Jenavieve


The Museum of Anthropology lies on the edge of the University of British Columbia on the cliffs of Point Grey. The location is spectacular. The museum has one of the finest displays of west coast First Nations art. Also a collection of European ceramics.

Age group:

I would say this activity is best for older children and adults.

Expense rating:

For current admission rates check the website below; If you want to save some money, the museum is free to all every Tuesday from 5 pm - 9 pm. For information call (604) 822-3825. Entertainment coupon accepted. Pay parking.


My favourite piece is the absolutely fabulous sculpture by Haida artist Bill Reid called "The Raven and the First Men".


Unless you're the studious type most of the exhibits are adult oriented.
