I would skip the Museum of Anthropology and just tour the Bill Reid Gallery. It is small but the exhibits are striking. Also, it's easier to find. You will learn more about the First Nation people.

The main exhibits are beautiful. But he temporary exhibit on Tattooing I found uniquely disturbing, albeit thought-provoking. The artist used words like "kkkolonization", "kkkristianity" and "amerikkkan". I was surprised to experience such aggression and anger in a gallery. But it did cause me to think...More

Bill Reid is the truly great sculptor of the great First Nations Haida tribe. You also should see his human origins sculpture at the Museum of Anthropology.

Your trip to the Anthropology Museum is not complete until you visit The Bill Reid Gallery. This amazing gallery is hidden in the middle of Vancouver Downtown .
