My wife asked the ticket clerk a simple polite question, and was answered very rudely—fortunately that was when we were on the way out, so it did not ruin our visit. With a little variation, the permanent exhibits (although technically well executed) would be applicable...More

The museum exhibits as they relate to the history of Vancouver. Of particular interest to us was the display of historic neon signs. We typically allow a couple of hours to tour the museum

The exhibts were well set out but I felt their were not enough to see though. The going through time was good but nothing from 1980s onwards which was odd.

Granville Island's packed theatres and art studios,
hobby shops and book stores, restaurants and bars, all
