No visit to Vancouver is complete without a tour of the Museum of Anthropology. The 11,000 sq. meter (120,000 sq. ft.) facility was designed by Arthur Erikson and is worthwhile visiting in its own right. After its expansion and major renovation, the building is even more spectacular.

The over 500,000 artifacts focus on the culture of BC's First Nations people. Highlights include the 15-metre glass walls of the Great Hall, beneath which stand towering totem poles from the Haida, Gitxsan, Nisga'a, Oweekeno and other First Nations; the Rotunda, where Bill Reid's massive sculpture, "The Raven and the First Men" is displayed; and the Koerner Ceramics Gallery, home to 600 pieces of 15-19th c. pottery.

The Museum grounds, designed by landscape architect Cornelia Oberlander, feature indigenous plants and grasses amongst two outdoor Haida Houses and ten full-scale totem poles (one inside the larger of the two Haida Houses), two carved house-posts, and a contemporary Welcome Figure.

  Why Book Through ToursByLocals? 
  THE TOURSBYLOCALS DIFFERENCE
  • Choose your own guide. See their photos, read their bios and communicate with them prior to booking your tour.
  • It's more affordable than you might think. Our pricing is per-tour NOT per-person so if there are 3 or more in your group, you'll probably pay less than if you took a big bus tour.
  • Every tour is private. Your guide will spend time only with you and the people you're traveling with.
  • Go at your own pace. See as much as you can or slow things down to a saunter. With your private guide, your day is flexible.
  • Benefit from a local's knowledge. Access more intimate, out of the way spots that have never seen a bus tour.
  • Every tour is customizable. See the sights YOU want, try the food YOU crave, learn about what interests YOU the most.
  • Questions? Talk to a REAL person. Our customer support team offers reliable, friendly service plus a 24 hour emergency hotline.
