Museum of Vancouver

Re-opening soon!

Gain a deeper understanding of our city through stories, objects and shared experiences at Museum of Vancouver (MOV). Learn about Vancouver's past from 1900 to 1970 by visiting MOV's History Galleries. The neon signs gallery is also a favorite of many guests. View a visual feast of innovation and tradition at Haida Now. In partnership with Haida Gwaii Museum, this stunning exhibition features an unparalleled display of more than 450 works created by carvers, weavers, photographers and print makers.

MOV is pleased to announce its newest feature exhibition Acts of Resistance, showcasing the artwork of seven indigenous artist activists from the Pacific Northwest, whose designs flew from the Iron Workers Memorial bridge on July 3, 2018 to protest the Trans Mountain Expansion Pipeline project (on view February 5, 2020 - Fall 2020).

Be sure to also check out Lattimer Gallery and Gifts at MOV while you visit.

MOV is located in scenic Vanier Park .  Only a 5 mins drive from downtown and a 20 mins stroll along the ocean boardwalk to either; Granville Island or Kitsilano Beach. MOV is easily accessible by False Creek Ferries, Mobi Bike Share Program and City Transit.

Please note: Due to COVID-19 restrictions access to the galleries are limited to selected times. Vanpass ticket holders may have to wait for a time to open up before getting access to the museum.
