Museum of Anthropology at UBC
The Museum of Anthropology is located in a spectacular corner of Vancouver, on the very western edge of the University of British Columbia (UBC). It houses ethnographic materials and the UBC Laboratory of Archaeology's archaeological materials. There are some 30,000 ethnographic objects and 200,000 archaeological objects in these collections. The ethnographic objects derive from many parts of the world, including the South Pacific, Asia, Africa, Europe, and the Americas. Permanent exhibits at the Museum of Anthropology emphasize the First Nations of coastal B.C., from whom almost half of the collections originate.Every year, more than 170,000 visitors from around the world visit the Museum of Anthropology. It is one of Vancouver's and Canada's best loved museums on the basis of its spectacular setting, stunning displays of Northwest Coast art, and active programming. In 1989, the Canadian Tourism Commission voted the Museum of Anthropology "Tourist Attraction of the Year - Canada" in recognition of its exceptional popularity with local and international audiences.
