Museums and Art Galleries
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. Be sure to explore the special exhibitions, wander the scenic grounds and enjoy the on-site café.
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.
