Museum Of Vancouver, Vancouver Reviews
From the street it looks like the entrance is on the right side. That's wrong and it's the archive there. It's the dame entrance as the planetarium. I did like the indigenous displays. The wild animal board for those in your area you can mark on a map. The animals they have there look in rough shape in some instances. Maybe they need retreating or removed. Flyong squirrel and a bird come to mind. Found it funny a man with a really nice camera with special lenses was taking pictures of dead animals instead of live ones on a nature walk.
Very interesting museum - good variety of exhibitions in a relatively small space. Great to see collaboration with the Haida too, so the history is as true as it can be. Visited in September 2018 and there were great temporary exhibitions too - one on wild animals in Vancouver (my favourite), one on Haida Gwaii, and one on old Vancouver neon signs. Highly recommended (plus the space centre is in the same building so you can do two in one!).
Very nice museum, had to include it in my YouTube video. Really fun if you're with the family, once you're done go sit down in a bench near the water, that's what I call a good day. I love Canada, better than I expected.
I enjoyed this museum very much! The displays are varied and well thought out. It was like 5 venues in one. Friendly staff and some interactive displays. The 19.00 entrance fee was worth it. Very interesting, my favorite part was the 50's theme. Although it is hard to choose! I liked the neon display a lot too. The City before the City was enlightening and upsetting. The plight of the Japanese Canadians who were displaced made me sad as well. I'm glad the museum is shining a light on our history!
Meh, it's OK but be honest, don't put this that high on your list. It has a bit too much of the currently overplayed how bad white people were, theme. The displays are fairly professionally done, but half the neon signs in the neon sign exhibit don't work, the space exhibit is... OK (the engine was cool), the animal part was a big hit. The 50's room was interesting, but for the most part - most of the area historical stuff just didn't really connect with any of us. There are better places to spend your time - you're on vacation, not here to get preached at from someone else's social justice priorities that you're paying to try and enjoy.
