The Museum of Anthropology is located on the University of British Columbia campus and contains First Nation art and artifacts of the Pacific Northwest. It is also known for its great views, as the site overlooks mountains and the ocean. Only 20 minutes outside downtown Vancouver, time should be allotted to wander around the grounds.
Volunteers lead free tours of MOA throughout the day, which serve as a great way for visitors to learn about the museum’s collections and exhibitions. The tours last just under an hour, giving folks plenty of time to explore on their own as well.
Parking is available in front of the museum and across the street at the Rose Garden Parkade. There are also bike racks near the Museum's entrance. The museum is open daily 10am to 5pm and until 9pm on Tuesdays. It is closed on Mondays from mid-October through mid-May. Along with a gift shop, there is an onsite café.
