Visiting a museum is always a unique experience and can offer great insight into the history and culture of the place you're visiting. Vancouver has an eclectic mix of museums–some are home to pieces that are unique to this city, while others house exhibits that are similar to museums around the globe. You'll find museums that feature everything from indigenous artifacts to fine art and so much in between.
There’s no better place to start than at the Museum of Anthropology, here you'll get a glimpse of how this country began. Large totem poles, beautifully crafted carvings and artifacts from around the globe are just some of the breathtaking pieces you will see there.
The Museum of Vancouver is a nice transition to learn more about Vancouver and its influences over the years. Plus, the HR MacMillan Space Center is also in the same building.
For those that are into something a little more weird and wacky, check out the Vancouver Police Museum and explore the city’s dark side. In this museum you will find everything from police uniforms, confiscated weapons and paraphernalia and a display of evidence from crime scenes in Vancouver. Located in the city's old morgue, the creep factor is upped when you step into the autopsy room. Not for the faint of heart!
