  • Just 20 minutes from downtown Vancouver and the Vancouver International Airport, the Museum of Anthropology, located at the University of British Columbia, houses one of the world’s finest displays of Northwest Coast First Nations arts in a spectacular Arthur Erickson-designed building overlooking mountains and sea.

    Inside the soaring glass and concrete structure of MOA’s Great Hall, see magnificent carvings, weavings and contemporary artworks. Admire the world’s largest collection of works by acclaimed Haida artist Bill Reid, including his famous cedar sculpture The Raven and the First Men, and explore the Multiversity Galleries where over 9,000 objects from around the world are displayed.

    Additionally, stroll MOA’s grounds, where monumental Haida houses, poles and Musqueam house posts capture the dramatic beauty of traditional Northwest Coast architecture and design. Enjoy a wide range of special exhibitions and public programs, including free guided tours.

    Visit the MOA Shop for an expertly-curated selection of handcrafted objects and relax in Café MOA.
