I had been meaning to visit for years as Anthropology has always been of interest to me. The facility is much larger than I was expecting and hold many treasures. We did a free tour and our guide was interesting and gave us a good...More
So much rich culture to learn about here & have always adored how they have such an immense collection available for browsing through their display cases with many pull out drawers. So important to learn about the cultures represented specifically in the Vancouver/ BC area...More
Impressive collection of totems. Very important place for First Nations art. Beautiful sculpture by Bill Reid, raven and the first man.
Diversity galleries interesting because they cross over continents.
We spent several hours looking st the history of the many tribes of the Nortwest. Great history lesson on many cultural histories that we have very little personal knowledge about.
Good place to visit.
Good option for a rainy day in Vancouver. We took the bus from downtown, about a 35 minute trip and then a walk through campus. Very good exhibits and history of indigenous Canadians. The building was a bit leaky but otherwise worth the effort. Lots...More
Each time we bring friends and relatives to the museum we feel more connected to our land. The presentation of collections is exquisite. This time the museum was not too crowded; it is so much better to visit when there are not too many people...More
An area as rich in history as it is in natural beauty, the expansive parkland of the University Land Endowments is protected by the city in cooperation with the University of British Columbia. A large green space studded by rose gardens, Japanese rock gardens, botanic gardens, canopy walks, regional parkland, and hiking trails, the University Land Endowments are a breath of fresh air. Combining a commitment to
preserving nature with a similar promise to preserve culture, its valleys are also home to the First Nations heritage museum, the biodiversity museum, and anthropological and memorial exhibitions. From its highest canopies to the sandy shorelines of Wreck Beach, its serenity is preserved by the University buildings that dot it, combining Mother Nature and scholarship.

There are some child friendly activities, such as trying out hammocks and being able to go out the back of the Museum where there is a little trail, a pond and two long houses..an area where there is ample room for kids to let off steam safely if they get restless. Many of the exhibits are really interesting for kids, such as bird specimens and First Nations carvings. I'm not sure I'd say the museum is a destination for young children, but if you are bringing them along, you should be fine.
