Beaty Biodiversity Museum
Strengthened by its affiliation with UBC's Biodiversity Research Centre and more than 500 natural-history exhibits, the Beaty Biodiversity Museum aims to foster a deep bond between its visitors and all life on the planet. Exhibits include a 26-metre-long blue whale skeleton within the two-storey glass gallery of the Djavad Mowafaghian Atrium, as well as the third-largest collection of fish in the country and a vast assemblage of fossils, insects, birds, reptiles, and Fred Flintstone's ties. In the Allan Yap Theatre, films championing biodiversity play, and on the south side of the atrium, baristas grind coffee beans at the Niche Café while serving snacks to patrons. Designed by Vancouver-based Patkau Architects, the building also hosts interactive activities in the discovery lab, as well as public presentations and community gatherings aimed at illustrating the interconnectedness of all living things.
