  • Thank-you Museum of Vancouver for offering free admission on Family Day! I have always loved history and Vancouver history in particular and I always enjoy a trip to the museum. It would be a dream job to set up and maintain all of the exhibits. Excellent current exhibits on "The Wild Things" and the Haida people. I am glad we went and we look forward to our next Museum of Vancouver outing.
  • Not quite what I expected. A larger part or exhibit when I visited, was something like "Vancouver 2050", which envisions Vancouver some time in the future, but overall reminded me of an art gallery on a bad acid trip, with random words being sporatically announced in the background, and sometimes semi-complete displays. Another part or display in the museum at the time was a 1950s themed area. It was pretty interesting. Overall, this was quite unlike the handful of other museums I have been to.
