The exterior of the Museum of Anthropology in Vancouver

Don't miss the exhibits at the  Museum of Anthropology (MOA) on the western edge of the University of British Columbia. As you walk through the carved doors, it's hard to tell which is more awe-inspiring, the building or its contents. Impressive Northwest Coast artifacts include monumental totems studded with carvings of ravens, bears, eagles, frogs and beavers. Visitors are encouraged to open any of the dozens of drawers that contain one of the world's most comprehensive collections of native artifacts, as well as objects from other cultures for comparison. There's an outdoor sculpture garden with 10 magnificent totems and two carved Haida houses that blend perfectly with their cliffside setting. The museum shop features a fine selection of Northwest Coast gold and silver jewelry, limited edition prints, carvings, baskets and masks, all created by first nation artists.
