A truly gigantic (literally and figuratively) collection of artifacts. It's the Louvre of Northwest Folk Art!

Well worth a 1/2 day or a day browsing through each section. So much of the history & information displayed help one to realise the global nature of Canada. Not the easiest of places to find on the lovely and very large BC campus, just ask and people are helpful in guiding you to the building.

The sheer size of the sculpture and totem poles is breathtaking. The museum is beautifully designed and incorporated into the UBC Campus. The price of admission is high, but well worth it.

I took 2 museum tours--a curator's tour of Salish baskets and a general museum tour. Both added to my knowledge and enjoyment and were free with admission. Building itself is beautiful

Yes, go there! If you are a social, cultural or biological person -or even if you not real at all! -take yourself and you will come away more whole than who/whatever you are now. Just hop on BUS 44 from waterfront Or anywhere on Burrard and let your compass meander you through campus until there.
