Museums and Art Galleries
The Irving K. Barber Learning Centre features contemporary art exhibits as well as the permanent Chung Collection, which highlights early immigration from China to BC. You’ll find First Nations carvings and weavings throughout the Centre, and portraits of UBC presidents and chancellors in the Ridington Reading Room. The building is also home to UBC Library’s Rare Books and Special Collections.
UBC’s Welcome Centre’s knowledgeable staff can answer your trip-related questions, provide maps and directions, offer helpful tips and free guided tours, and let you know what events are happening during your visit to UBC.
