Whether you are a resident or a visitor to Vancouver, a must see is the Museum of Anthropology. Located on the UBC campus on Point Grey, the museum houses the finest collection of West Coast Canadian First Nations artifacts and art. If the content doesn’t ‘wow’ you, the architecture is outstanding.
In addition to the Canadian content, there are numerous artifacts and exhibits from other indigenous cultures circling the Pacific Ocean, and definitely worth taking some extra time to view.
Count on spending at least 1/2 day on site, and possibly longer. Definitely worth the drive!
