Why locals love it

Museums of Anthropology generally are loved because Anthropology is pretty cool. But, in this case, this museum is very loved because it devotes a great deal of its exhibit space to the First Nations Peoples of Canada. You can explore oral histories, and learn about the "city before the city" here.

Why you should visit it

If you want to know more about the land on which you are standing, and the rich history over the past 2,000 years, stop by. You will not be disappointed. You will learn a lot. A trip here will enhance your understanding of the land, its peoples, and our histories.

Special tip

UBC is kind of far. Try to match this with some things in Kits, or at UBC (you can visit Wreck Beach...even in the winter!).

Good place to seriously start to learn about Canadian indigenous history rather than what you see at Stanley Park.

In addition to Northwest First Peoples artifacts and contemporary pieces, the museum also has artifacts from many other parts of the world, two temporary exhibit space, an excellent display of European ceramics and outdoor exhibits. Well worth a visit.
