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.
