The Museum of Anthropology located at the University of British Columbia is a very popular Vancouver attraction
Vancouver's Museum of Anthropology, located at the University of British Columbia, is an extremely popular destination for both tourists and locals.
The current home of the museum, designed by the well known Canadian architect Arthur Erickson was completed in 1976. The design was influenced by the post-and-beam architecture used by the Northwest Coast First Nations.
The museum features a large collection of Northwest Coast First Nations art as well as large collections from the South Pacific, Africa, and Asia and Europe. Articles include an extensive collection of textiles, art, historic photographs, carvings, masks, pottery, coins and weapons to name a few.
On Tuesday evenings between 5 and 9pm there is a special reduced admission rate that you can take advantage of.
