Museum Of Vancouver, Vancouver Reviews - Write a Review
Their permanent exhibitions are well-designed, and are very informative and entertaining at the same time. If you ever wondered about the riots in Vancouver, the history of the neon lights or wanted to know more about the first nation settlements that existed before Vancouver, this museum is the right place to get educated. The only obnoxious thing I experienced was a young student group about 20-25 people who were yelling at each other, played tag and were generally very loud. It would be great if they had been told before entering the museum to keep quiet.
There’s several hours worth of exhibits here at least. I personally love the special neon sign collection and the decades of Vancouver exhibit (Vancouver in the 50’s, 60’s etc). Admission wasn’t cheap at $16 for a student, but it’s not expensive either, for the quality of the exhibits. There was plenty to keep you occupied for an afternoon. And great exhibits on Indigenous cities, cultures, and traditions.
What a great place to spend a rainy afternoon. As a new resident of Vancouver it was really interesting to learn about the history of this beautiful city
This Museum is Awesome!!!! I walk by this place almost every single day, when I'm in Vancouver, which is almost never, and I can't tell you enough that I should've brought all of my friends and family and their kids and families here sooner!
Overall, this place is a very interesting museum that explores Vancouver's cultural diversity, issues, and history. It flows very well from one exhibit to the next, and shed light on many aspects of the city from its First Nation heritage to the cultural influences as well. It's reasonably priced. Worth a visit if you're in the area.
