Museum Of Anthropology, Vancouver Reviews

  • Remarkable museum. Very well laid out and informative. I was not expecting Asia, the South Pacific and Greece to be represented as well, so that was a nice surprise. Highly recommended. Especially since it rains (a lot), this is a nice dry way to spend some time in Vancouver.

  • This feels like a small museum but then you discover the drawers that pull out with even more things in and suddenly you've got more than it's possible to see in a day. The cafe was good with a comfortable sofa. The different rooms had different ways of showing objects so that there's no chance of getting board. The gift shop was full of interesting items.

  • I try to get to the Museum of Anthropology a couple times a year. The art displays and history are first rate. I always leave with a feeling of connectedness to a larger family. It is not easy to get to by transit and parking is awkward unless you luck out in a parking space. The challenge is worth the effort.

  • Really interesting collections. It's like a warehouse of human history. Open the drawers for even more items carefully catalogued. I wish there was more information on the items without having to go to the computer system.

  • This museum always impresses with an extensive collection of aboriginal art and artifacts. The temporary exhibits are informative as they are interesting. The building and the grounds themselves are great representations of BC.
