What You'll Get


Humans are doomed to repeat history unless they learn from it or steal its keys so it can't get back in the house. Open eyes to a brighter side of the human story with today's Groupon: for $15, you get two adult-admission tickets to University of British Columbia Museum of Anthropology (up to a $31.36 value) on Marine Drive. Groupon holders also get 20 per cent off at the museum gift shop.

The recently expanded Museum of Anthropology drives thriving exhibition, education, and research of the visual and performative culture of First Nations and international communities. Visitors bask in sunlight streaming through the Great Hall's 15-metre-high windows, framing exhibits and performances, as well as totem poles, house posts, and carved masks from First Northwest Coast Nations. Multiversity Galleries (Ways of Knowing) showcase more than 10,000 objects from cultures around the world, from Cantonese opera costumes to toys, coins, paintings, ceramics, and grocery receipts from other Asian nations. Museum goers admire artwork by Ojibwa artist and activist Carl Beam in a temporary exhibit, examine 19th-century European earthenware in the Koerner Gallery, or engage in heated staring contests with Bill Reid's sculpture The Raven and The First Men, featured on the $20 bill.

MOA Shop wares welcome hands and eyes with original Northwest Coast jewellery, masks, baskets, and limited-edition prints. Gregarious guests also peruse a gallery of books with topics related to contemporary Northwest Coast art and issues or a line of giftware, hardware, and business attire designed for the museum by First Nations artists.

About University of British Columbia Museum of Anthropology


After more than 60 years, the University of British Columbia Museum of Anthropology could almost do an anthropological study on its own history, from its humble basement beginnings in 1949 to its present-day status as Canada's largest teaching museum. Today, it is home to thousands of ethnographic objects—objects gathered from indigenous cultures around the world—including totem poles, silver, and masks from the First Nations. The array of artifacts from the province’s northwest coast is eclipsed only by the museum’s Asian collections, which transport visitors back in time with historical Cantonese opera costumes, ceramics, and paintings.
