This is a great little museum to spend the afternoon in.  The Vancouver history galleries were redeveloped in the last few years and present history in a colourful and unique way.  Spend 1-2 hours exploring buildings from old Chinatown, learning about Japanese internment and experiencing drive-ins and hippie protests.  Usually, there are also a couple of temporary exhibits on a variety of aboriginal or historical themes.  In all, definately worth seeing.
