Visited on a rainy day. Very beautiful museum. Great free daily tours by knowledgeable guide. Lots of Canadian and international history. Located near the ocean short walk many stairs down to the beach.
I was pleasantly surprised at how nice this museum is - the building is well designed and the pieces on display are amazing to look at. I was glad to not only see local Indigenous artwork and pieces but also historical items from other countries...More
This is a museum with a lot of stuff, and everyone will likely see something that attracts their interest and makes them spend a long time looking at it. For me that was the Squamish language, one of the dying First Nations languages.
This was really worth visiting. We joined a couple of the free tours of the museum, which really helped us to understand what we were seeing. The guides did a great job.
There is a nice gift shop, too.
This is well worth paying the...More

One of the most important places to visit in Vancouver. Their collection of native art is impressive and will make for an unforgettable experience. British Columbians care about their First Nations roots, and this is where you get to meet them in all their splendor.
The museum is so well organized, the displays are beautiful and there is so much to learn about British Columbia and the world. There are areas of international culture as well. It has a cafeteria and gift shop and you can spend two or three...More
Visited the MOA with a group of friends during a weekend that was meant to focus on the Northwest comedy tour of Just For Laughs and a Vancouver Canucks hockey game. It was an absolute pleasure with great exhibitions of First Nations artifacts from around...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 express buses to UBC, use the Translink app to plan your journey. You simply type in your location and destination and desired time, and it gives you all the information. Avoid rush hour on the buses, though, if you want a seat. Alternatively, if you are s group, take a taxi or limo service and ask the driver to take the scenic route. on the way back, stop at Kits beach. There is a nice restaurant with stunning views. Enjoy!
