Museum of Anthropology at UBC

The Museum of Anthropology at UBC at Vancouver, British Columbia

Just 20 minutes from downtown Vancouver and the Vancouver International Airport, the UBC Museum of Anthropology houses one of the world’s finest displays of Northwest Coast First Nations art in a spectacular Arthur Erickson designed building overlooking the mountains and ocean. It also features extensive collections from around the world as well as a wide range of temporary exhibitions, guided tours, and other public events.

MOA, Canada’s contemporary museum of world arts and cultures, is a place of extraordinary architectural beauty, provocative programming, and exciting exhibitions. From towering totem poles in our spectacular Great Hall, to the iconic “The Raven and the First Men” sculpture in the Bill Reid Rotunda, to more than 10,000 objects from around the world housed in our new Multiversity Galleries, and cutting-edge temporary exhibitions on display in The Audain Gallery, MOA offers endless opportunities for visitors to discover and learn about their own and other cultures.

We also offer an outdoor totem display, elegant Shop, Café MOA, free guided gallery walks, and customized tours by special arrangement. Wheelchair accessible.
