Vancouver’s Museum of Anthropology (MOA) — at the tip of the city’s west side — is now open again with strict Covid 19 health and safety protocols in place, including mandatory wearing of masks, and with visits on a timed-entry basis. Visitors must pre-purchase a ticket on-line, and can do so up to a month in advance. Tickets are 15$ for adults, 13$ for students and seniors, and a number of groups qualify for free admission. Children under 6 are also free. The MOA is open 10 am to 5pm from Tuesday to Sunday and entries are based on 30-minute intervals. Its website has a well- laid out system for booking a visit. Allocate 2 to 3 hours to see all on offer. There is also a cafe where a range of foods and drinks are available. The MOA, which is on Musqueam land, was designed by legendary architect, Arthur Erickson, is beautifully located at the edge of UBC’s campus, and houses a formidable collection of NW Coast artifacts. Just strolling around the building, looking at the totems in front and out to the ocean is a treat. I often do just that. There is paid parking outside and at the nearby UBC Rose Garden. It is about 20 mins by car from downtown; an easy bus ride and even a nice, if long, walk from the nearby neigbourhoods. The clear, crisp days of February are perfect for a visit. Posted by S Fuller

Our first time visiting MOA today. Prebooked our entry and Covid guidelines were all clear. Displays were amazing, the incredible artifacts and artistry was endless. Nations were beautifully displayed. The special exhibit "Shame and Prejudice " was very important display depicting the horror of lives of indigenous peoples since colonization.

Give yourself plenty of time - the display rooms go on and on. As an anthropological tour of 'all' indigenous cultures, this place can be overwhelming and a little confusing, jumping from ancient China to Vancouver Island to New Zealand, but much to see and much to consider. Take the walk outside to visit the massive exterior exhibits.

Well, At the Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia, I was gonna go there when I am gonna be 30 years old to do some courses about Native American history, and I will have college campus at the Steinbach Bible College to learn about Christian history, and I will go to the Red River College to learn about Ancient Egypt, Ancient Rome, Moai statues, Stonehenge, and ancient history. When I'm in Grade 10 at the Steinbach Regional Secondary School, I would learn about the orchestra to listen to Bach, Beethoven, and Mozart all in one composer. I've gotta learn about music, art and history, and more things, There's gotta be a way to learn more about education. I will help the people with disabilities that need help to eat, and I would help people in Mexico survive instead of hunger, And I would give them food to eat. I would help the people with disabilities that are from different parts of the world. I would go on a missions trip to South Africa to help the people who were living in hunger and fear. I really don't like the announcements at the Steinbach Regional Secondary School because it is even worse than Blumenort School's. I would wanna see Raven and the First Men at the Museum of Anthropology carved by Bill Reid. Thanks for the contact:)

One of the best museums that I have visited but make sure you take advantage of the free guided tour. I learned so much about the symbolism of the totem poles and the indigenous people of Canada. Fascinating .
