It may be nice if you have lived in a cave for your whole life and haven't seen a totem before, but this one is not special in any way. Just a few totems, next to a toilet and a gift shop. However its on the way when walking along the seawall, so stopoing there for a photo is maybe... More

If you are in stanley park.. its worth a view. Good descriptions and a place for good photo opps :) For my 1st viewing of totem poles.. i was quite impressed. The totems are right next to a refreshment stand and the horse drawn carriages.

Inside of Stanley park. Great collection of native totem I have ever seen. Gift shop is located nearby. Fee for parking. Worth stopping by.

Well, they are totem poles. once you have seen one in Canada, you have seen them all. Not that impressive and nothing else there to see. It is near the pickup for the horse drawn tram. Take a ride on that instead as it is far more enjoyable and you will see the park in any easy fun way

Wanted to see these before I got to Vancouver was wasn't disappointed. They were amazing and the information display about each pole and the history of the people was great and very informative. Well worth the walk and time to read the information.

Nice examples of First Nation carvings from the Pacific Northwest. It was interesting to read the background information and learning about the totem poles and their meanings.

Not quite what I was expecting to see in Vancouver but still an interesting small selection of totem poles. Popular with tourists and locals alike.

This is located in Stanley Park, on the east section. It is a nice location, near to the seawalls. The totems are beautiful.
