Museum Of Vancouver, Vancouver Reviews

  • Very awesome place, must check it out! They have many artifacts that are very interesting. The museum is not big, but big enough to learn and have a good time. In some parts of the museum they have comfortable chairs that once you sit a recording of some art or interviewed starts playing (depends on theme) I think it was great idea even when you seat learn something.

  • Wonderful location, nice views. Staff was helpful and has nice exhibits to keep the kids entertained while they are learning. The domed theater was nice place explore the stars and galaxies. Glad we made this a stop on our visit

  • I do not know the value for money because I did not pay to visit this museum, but anyway I took some interesting photos.

  • Great place to visit if you love Vancouver. Not the biggest museum but lots of interesting items and stories about the city. Everything from native art to the "ugly" neon signs of the 50s and 60s.

  • The Museum of Vancouver brought me back in time. I grew up in Vancouver in the seventies and eighties and many of the displays and pieces reminded me of those times. The one that I enjoyed the most was the neon sign pavilion. I remember driving or walking by those signs as a boy. Many of those signs now either destroyed or sitting in a museum show how much Vancouver has changed. Many of the historical places and landmarks are now gone replaced with dense condo/apartment developments. This is not the city I knew and loved. I miss the old Vancouver.
