Museum Of Anthropology - Review

The Museum of Anthropology, in the University of British Columbia is sure to be a treat for both art and history lovers. The world’s art and culture finds a wonderful homage through this museum. Their objective is to create interest in the world of Anthropology and they do so brilliantly.

The great hall is decorated by artefacts and is often home to a huge number of concerts and lectures. There are a few outdoor exhibits and a stunning ceramics gallery. There is truly a lot to see and do here so do make sure you have enough time to do all that. They also have quite a few exhibitions and public programs that you should certainly check out during your visit there.

The museum may not be ideal for very young children but slightly older kids will love it. It is a great attraction for families as well as culture seekers. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Vancouver Itinerary 4 Days.

Museum Of Anthropology, Vancouver Reviews

  • Worth visiting for the architecture, which is absolutely beautiful. It's a dominating building in a beautiful setting, with lots of natural light inside from skylights. The collections themselves differ. There's an enormous collection of totems, a room entirely dedicated to one man's ceramics collection, and a room filled with various bits and pieces from many other cultures as well as First Nations. This room was iffy for me coming from New Zealand + Tongan background - many of the labels on the items really missed the mark, in some cases were downright wrong. I also question how they wound up at the museum as these things clearly weren't gifted by people from the cultures themselves - they seem to have all been collected by a Mr Frank Burnett. The surroundings of the museum are lovely. The university campus itself is worth wandering through, and definitely go to the bookstore (which is more than a bookstore). But the museum is more lovely outside than in, for me.

  • Great display of traditional artifacts from all over the world, but with focus on the local ones. The museum also aims at doing justice to the aboriginal people and their art. I loved how they displayed the large variety of exhibits. Because the space is limited they placed some of the handicrafts in drawers. Visitors can pull the drawers they want and see the objects that are representative of the aborigines' way of life. You can browse an e-catalogue which helps you to locate any handicrafts you would be interested to see. Discounted tickets are available on Thursday evenings.

  • Amazing museum with an incredible collection. Curated and yet not, it allows you to choose your own adventure as you move through the museum. Start with a guided tour! It takes an hour but will provide great context for your second hour. Highly recommend this museum if you are visiting Vancouver and want to learn more about the First Nations of BC.

  • Love this museum! Wonderful exhibits from First Nations peoples. Great free guided tours of the collection. Don't miss the boggling storage area, which is behind glass doors but open to the public. Well worth a bus ride from downtown Vancouver!

  • An amazing place to see First Nation artifacts and learn about their culture. Very knowledgeable docents and great exhibits. Easily spent a half-day there. Cafeteria not great; eat before or after.
