Museum of Anthropology (MOA)

Museums and Art Galleries

Museum of Anthropology in UBC Vancouver campus


The Museum of Anthropology is temporarily closed from January 2023 to June 2024 to accelerate the completion of the seismic upgrades of its iconic Great Hall and conduct other building improvements. Though the building is temporarily closed, MOA continues to facilitate access for Indigenous communities to the collections. It also continues to offer special events and digital school programs for the public to enjoy throughout the temporary closure.

With its soaring architecture, spectacular sea-to-sky views and stunning Northwest Coast First Nations art collection, the Museum of Anthropology at UBC is a must-see among Vancouver museums. Don’t miss the dramatic Great Hall, with its magnificent carved house poles, or Haida artist Bill Reid’s cedar sculpture, The Raven and the First Men. Try not to rush your visit to this acclaimed BC museum — the impressive collections of global art and artifacts are worth your time.
