Why locals love it

The area behind the Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia is a lovely spot for a walk, taking photos, admiring the view of the Northshore Mountains, and seeing a rare piece of history. Most people walk right past it but, tucked behind the museum's north side is the preserved remains of a WW2 coastal gun battery.

Why you should visit it

The MOA is a lovely setting with a Haida Longhouse & mortuary house, Musqueam house posts, and Totem poles to admire and WW2 gun emplacements. No 1 emplacement has been preserved and has a detailed plaque explaining the sites use and history.

Special tip

You can visit all three emplacements. No2 is the base for The Raven and the First Men sculpture inside the Museum, & No 3 is beside the Great Hall.
