Museum of Anthropology at UBC
A place of world arts & cultures

 Explore traditional and contemporary art from Northwest Coast First Nations and other cultures across the world at the Museum of Anthropology. MOA features provocative exhibitions and engaging events, all within an iconic building by renowned architect Arthur Erickson that overlooks the mountains and ocean.

Just 20 minutes from downtown Vancouver, you’ll see remarkable carvings, weavings and contemporary artworks inside the soaring glass and concrete structure of the Great Hall.  Admire the world’s largest collection of works by acclaimed Haida artist Bill Reid and explore the Multiversity Galleries where more than 16,000 objects from around the world are displayed.

Stroll the Museum Grounds, where monumental totem poles, Haida houses and Musqueam house posts capture the dramatic beauty of traditional Northwest Coast architecture and design, or take a free guided tour and learn about the many cultures that call this spectacular region home.
