Before science was invented, going green used to mean chugging a two-litre of broccoli juice then spinning around a baseball bat for 30 seconds. Exercise a healthier expression of blue and yellow's love child with today's Groupon: for $10, you get two adult admissions (a $24 value) to the Beaty Biodiversity Museum on UBC’s Main Mall. Research conducted by UBC's scientists metamorphoses into public knowledge at the Beaty Biodiversity Museum, where two million specimens form six collections staffed and serenaded nightly by knowledgeable volunteers and interpreters. Learn about fungi, marine creatures, and fossils before visiting more than 40,000 non-permineralized specimens of vertebrates, including the enormous skeleton of a blue whale.


The Georgia Straight, Inside Vancouver blog, and Beyond Robson have all featured the Beaty Museum. Four Yelpers give it a perfect five stars.

  • Sweet whale skeleton! The whole building is fantastic. It was built to be a sustainable building with a natural meadow-like feel in the courtyard. Great place to enjoy lunch! – Reena M., Yelp

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.
