Museum of Vancouver - OPEN

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.

Temporary Exhibitions:

 A Seat at the Table: Chinese Immigration and British Columbia - This multi-sited exhibition explores historical and contemporary stories of Chinese Canadians in BC and their struggles for belonging. It looks to food and restaurant culture as an entry point to feature stories that reveal the great diversity of immigrant experience and of the communities immigrants develop.

Boarder X – an exhibition of interdisciplinary contemporary art by Indigenous artists from across Canada, who surf, skate, and snowboard will open.
