Located in Vanier Park, the Museum of Vancouver shepherds contemporary minds to the world of yesterday, today, and tomorrow with interactive, multimedia exhibitions and an artifact collection that traces humanity's journey to the 21st century. Visitors can immerse themselves in the burbling waters of history during any of the museum's regular hours.
Once inside the facility, engage in the civic conversation stoked by current exhibition Neon Vancouver | Ugly Vancouver, a privileged peek at roughly 19,000 signs that made up the glowing cityscape circa 1950–1970. Alternatively, Art Deco Chic shows off garments from the 1920s and 1930s, including private collections from Ivan Sayers, Claus Jahnke, the Museum of Vancouver, as well as the emperor's new clothes.
Museum of Vancouver
When the Museum of Vancouver was founded, its mission was to show Vancouverites the wonders of the world. But that all changed in 2009. Today, the museum's mission is to show the world the wonders of Vancouver using interactive exhibitions and programs that explore the city's past, present, and future.
- Feature Exhibition: Your Future Home: Creating the New Vancouver (through May 15) explores the hottest topics in Vancouver today—housing affordability, urban density, mobility, and public space. It invites people to discover surprising facts about the city and imagine what Vancouver might become.
- Eye Catcher: The museum's iconic building, which opened in 1968, resembles the woven-basket hats crafted by the region's First Nations peoples—it has since become one of the most recognizable points of the city's skyline.
- Permanent Mainstay: The City Before the City explores the Musqueam’s ancient landscape and living culture. Guests are encouraged to reflect upon Vancouver’s Aboriginal history as they view belongings, digital displays, and a series of recorded interviews with community members
- Don't Miss: MOV history galleries are filled with rare and unique artifacts including a 1955 Ford Fairlane, neon signs, a jukebox, and a myriad of interesting stories
