A must-see for students & adults with an existing love of nature, biology, conservation or evolution. With a small amount of background knowledge (1 university course or a few YouTube videos) you can enjoy this museum so much more. Makes perfect sense to have it on a university campus as its best enjoyed by people with an existing interest. That being said, it’s my favourite museum in Vancouver.

Loving this new glass building on the UBC campus. Drawn into the entrance by Big Blue, the blue whale skeleton from PEI. This building really showcases the skeleton! Unfortunately we were unable to view the lower floors due to rental of the space for a private event. Will return for further inspection.

This is an unusual museum in that many of the bodies are hidden away in cabinets, a few are in glass cases and some are in drawers that you can pull out (including one with some interesting advice about how to poison your nearest and dearest). We did a tour with a docent who turned out to be an English major but who did an excellent job showing us around and helped to bring the place to life.

Another great cultural/science visit in the UBC area. A lot of information and examples of animals, plants and other beings in this museum. But after a while it turns into the same thing over and over, I missed a little diversity in terms of how to interact and receive information. TIP: There is a discount if you buy a ticket for both Biodiversity and the Anthropology museums.

This museum takes you through samples of species of all manner of flora and fora going forwards in time from the primordial swamps. It's very much an archive of samples so it's rows of plants and bones and taxidermy in jars and cabinets and drawers. It's a little dark. But fascinating to see the progression of species. The big blue whale skeleton is excellent and the story of how it was salvaged is interesting and you can view that, and visit the gift shop, for free. There is a combo ticket with the museum of anthropology which also gives you discount in the gift shops.
