Special Events

Museum of Anthropology
Saturday, 10 November, 1:00 pm

Cost: $35 US

This 60 minute guided Museum of Anthropology is a place of world arts and cultures with a special emphasis on the First Nations peoples and other cultural communities of British Columbia, Canada. MOA is built on the traditional, ancestral and unceded land of the Musqueam people and it is fitting that the first artworks and words you encounter outside the Museum are a welcome from our generous First Nations hosts.  The Museum itself embodies the essence of Canada’s West Coast. In MOA’s Great Hall, massive and magnificent First Nations sculptures stand against a soaring glass wall that opens onto a panorama of forested islands and snow-capped mountains bordering the Salish Sea. Outside, eagles glide and ravens caw under a sky whose subtle, constantly changing colours and tones form a backdrop for the stories and performances choreographed in MOA’s exhibition galleries.
