|The Museum of Vancouver shepherds contemporary minds to the world of yesterday, today, and tomorrow with interactive, multimedia exhibits and an artifact collection that traces humanity’s journey to the 21st century. Members can immerse themselves in the burbling waters of history during any of the museum’s regular hours without worrying about calling ahead or launching a catapult full of RSVPs. Once at the facility, new members will want to engage in the civic conversation stoked by the recently opened exhibit [_Neon Vancouver||Ugly Vancouver_](http://gr.pn/uEJCnz). A permanent exhibit, The 50’s Gallery sweeps patrons into the post-war dreams of a city welcoming home soldiers, widening its streets for automobiles, and converting army helmets into soup bowls.|
In the artifact collection, marvel at objects that follow civilization’s technological and creative advances throughout history. The “Skytte” carved bowl captures the artistry and wonder of the Fraser Valley people of 5500 to 1500 years ago, and the fuzzy Expo Ernie stuffed toy depicts the famed robot mascot waving to the future and smiling at its newly acquired cotton heart. With regular lectures, reading, and dialogues posted on the calendar, members can learn ways to address issues facing local architecture, neighbourhoods, and energy conservation.

About Museum of Vancouver
The Museum of Vancouver (MOV) connects Vancouverites to the city and to the world. MOV is dedicated to encouraging a deeper understanding of Vancouver through stories, objects and shared experiences using interactive exhibitions and programs that explore the city’s past, present and future.
Featured Exhibition, City on Edge: A Century of Vancouver Activism, is a photo-based exhibition exploring how protest demonstrations have shaped Vancouver’s identity. The exhibition is a unique opportunity to access rarely seen images capturing epic moments of Vancouver’s protest history from the Vancouver Sun and The Province newspapers’ photo collection. These photographs are exceptional historical records of intense and transformative moments in the lives of Vancouverites. The Unbelievable exhibition, in collaboration with HCMA Architecture + Design, features contested objects, storied replicas and iconic artifacts for a mind-bending exploration of the role stories play in defining community.
