Beaty Biodiversity Museum at the UBC Museum Campus
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. Dubbed the "Best Collection of Weird Things in Drawers," the Beaty Biodiversity Museum showcases more than two million biological specimens, and among the treasures are a 26-metre long (85 ft.) blue whale skeleton that looms over visitors as they arrive in the atrium. They also have the third largest fish collection in Canada, as well as an enormous collection of fossils, shells, insects, fungi, mammals, birds, and plants from around British Columbia and across the world. Those guests seeking an interactive experience can head to the Allan Yap Discovery Lab or check out a film in the Allan Yap Theatre. 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.
