History with a great
Point Grey Battery0
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.
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.
