The Museum of Anthropology is located on the campus of the University of British Columbia, twenty minutes from downtown Vancouver. The museum is also a ten minute walk from the main bus loop on campus.
The Museum of Anthropology houses one of the world’s finest displays of Northwest Coast First Nations art in a spectacular building overlooking mountains and sea. But they are also famous for their collections from around the world, including European ceramics, Asian textiles, Greek and Roman pottery, and African masks. The unique Visible Storage Galleries bring 14,000 objects to public view, and our changing exhibits highlight contemporary and historical works by extraordinary indigenous artists. Free gallery talks and tours, an elegant Gift Shop, and endless opportunities to discover, reflect, teach and learn await you.
