Features
Quirky/offbeat

Located on the Vancouver campus of the University of British Columbia, the Museum of Anthropology displays Northwest Coast First Nations art. It is housed in an arresting Arthur Erickson-designed building, all concrete and glass, which echoes the post-and-beam structures of the First Nations settlements. The great views provided by the museum's perch on the cliffs of Point Grey and the immense totems towering over the building are alone worth the visit.
