The museum is part of Univ of BC, but it is a splendid, educational, fun place, exceptionally well laid out and inviting. Don't miss opening the drawers in the glass-case exhibit halls - there are astonishing treasures for you to find. (The drawers are all those things with enormous bronze handles under the exhibits on display.) Who knew people make clothing out of salmon skin? Whoever could imagine such intricate beadwork? Wow is the only word. And though the museum naturally showcases First Nations from BC, it is a true anthropology museum and covers many cultures from all around the world. There is even a basket-woven Harley Davidson. Yes, really. Not to mention Bill Reid's exceptional sculptures. I'd rather have a Reid than a Picasso...but at this museum, all can appreciate his vision. Do not miss this place when in Vancouver.
