The AERA Graduate Student Council has organized a guided tour to help us discover British Columbia’s indigenous heritage. We will be taking the public transit to get a sense of how it feels to live in beautiful Vancouver to The Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia
The Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia (UBC) is one of Vancouver’s cultural highlights, as well as one of Canada’s most significant buildings. Its architecture and collections are world-renowned, and it serves an important role as a research institution in the Lower Mainland.
Founded in 1949 in a library basement, the Museum is now located in a spectacular building overlooking mountains and sea. It houses over 38,000 ethnographic objects and 535,000 archaeological objects, many of which originate from the Northwest Coast of British Columbia.
