I have visited the museum a number of times of times since childhood and found this time one of the best. I was always enamoured by the totem poles and native masks, but always found the placards describing them very elementary and unfortunately still do. There are books where you can read about items in more detail, but that is not for me, or a lot of patrons. This time I decided to take a guided tour and I was very please. Our tour guide took us throughout the museum to the various galleries sharing great details to the pieces and background information. The gallery that really sparked my atention was the recently added (around the 2010 Olympics) Multiversity Gallery. Here on display are many works and objects from around the world. These objects are stored and presented beautifully. They also have ineractive displays where you can find out more information on each object. Also, if you run out of time in the museum, you can look up the details of the artifacts and works on their website. The Multiversity Gallery is a lot to get through, but totally worth the visit.
