Things to do in Vancouver

  • Vancouver Museum Vancouver Museum Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
    The Vancouver Museum (MOV) is now the Museum of Vancouver, located in Vanier Park, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada that started in 1894 and just finished a important restoration project in 2008, and shares the space with H. R. MacMillan Space Center. This museum was started by the Art, Historical and Scientific Association of Vancouver that formed in 1894 striving to cultivate a "taste for the beauties and refinements in life". They begin collecting artifacts and curios, showcasing them in various mediums until the museum opened their first permanent location in the Carnegie Library in 1905. The present building was constructed as part of the nation's centennial 1967, and the next year re-opened as the Centennial Museum. In 1981, it was renamed the Vancouver Museum, with a strong effort to rejuvenate the permanent display galleries, and then in the spring of 2009, it became the Museum of Vancouver, thanks mainly to this rejuvenation. Today, the MOV is again striving to increase its importance to the citizens of Vancouver by describing the city in newer and most intriguing venues. The museum contains the collection of artifacts that has been collected from around the globe by the city's residents, that includes a mummy bought in Egypt during WWI, popular culture relics collected locally from the latter part of the 19th century and the 20th century, a taxidermy of local game and wildlife and journals created by middle and upper class women that chronicled their traveling throughout the British empire. The Vancouver history collection was begun by Major James Skitt Matthews, the city's first archivist, that started collecting three-dimensional relics in 1929, that would be important to the city's populace. James was able to save many exciting curiosities and souvenirs of the residents history and took such marvelous joy in uncovering for them that would be related to the firsts and the lasts of such materials. He also would save the tales of the items, often writing them on the objects in India ink so they would be distinguished for future generations. The majority of his collection was moved to the museum during the 1970s by the city archives, but the important correspondence and photographic items related to the relics are still found in the archives; especially his papers.  Curator Robb Watt would then build a outstanding collection of Vancouver stained glass, as well as having the insight to buy a group of older neon signs in 1977. The next curator, Ivan Sayers, would build a big historical clothing collection and was able to obtain two prominent Chinese Canadian collections for the Yip family and photographer Yucho Chow. Next was Joan Siedl that began to focus on the cataloguing and display of this Vancouver material and in 2008, was able to acquire Doreen Margaret (Peggy)Imredy's collection of about 3500 objects that pertained to Stanley Park that is used in the display; the Unnatural History of Stanley Park. In their archaeology collection there is the items collected from the Marpole Midden and the St. Mungo Cannery site in the Fraser Delta. The First Nations collections contains the Ronald and Amy Campbell-Johnson Collection, the argillite carvings from Dr. and Mrs. C. A. Ryan and May W. Henderson, and the Edward and Mary Lipsett collection. In 1984, the museum bought numerous First Nations relics that were collected in 1792 by a group of Captain George Vancouver's crew.

  • Science World
    In 2005, the Science World was officially changed to the Telus World of Science, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada since they donated $9 million to the museum and its works. Barbara Brink conducted mobile hands-on displays in what was known as the Extended I in the lower mainland during 1977, with the temporary Arts, Sciences & Technology Center opening in downtown Vancouver, in 1982 that attracted more than 600,000 visitors, with another 400,000 gaining some benefits from the outreach programs that went around the province. In 1984, when the city won the hosting rights for the 1986 World's Fair, or Expo 86 as it came to be known, a magnificent geodesic dome was designed to be used as the center, but when the expo closed, many citizens was to keep the unique building for other purposes. The arts, sciences and technology center would be moved there, and a huge campaign started to raise the necessary funds. Altogether, $19.1 million was donated to construct additions to the dome, transform the interior and create exhibits. In 1988, during a four month preview, more than 310,000 visitors came and a year later, the 400 seat IMAX theater was constructed in the upper part of the dome and then opened. The IMAX was transformed into a 3D theater in to show the Expo "transitions" film series that occurred during the previous years. The center would get its first sponsor in 1996, with Alcan, Inc. and the IMAX was renamed to the Alcan IMAX, but then later, after it had agreed to help in other ways, the theater went back to its original name. In 2005, it was renamed the "Telusphere" when their multi-million dollar donation was received, but became quite unpopular with the visitors and residents. In the summer of 2005, it was changed again, this time to the Telus World of Science, although it hasn't caused any problems with the SkyTrain station that is located close by, and is also referred to as Science World. In the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, it was changed into the Russky Dom, that was also known as the Sochi.ru World, that showcased the plans for the 2014 Winter Olympics that are going to be hosted in Sochi, Russia. During the last two weeks of February, 2010, visitors could visit from noon to 5 PM., with many parties being held in the dome in the evenings for accredited guests.  Featured exhibitions include Treasure! and Cool Globes, with galleries showcasing Eureka, Science News & View, Search, Kidspace, Our World and Bodyworks. The treasure exhibition contains many possible types of treasure hunting with pirates, underwater treasure, protecting treasure, gold rushes, the modern Treasure hunt, Treasures in the Attic and Treasure in Popular Culture; all exciting venues that involve the thrills of treasure hunting, as well as the who, what and why. The cool globes, weighing a ton each, have been around the world, and the huge spheres were created by community groups, children and artists, showing some type of solution to global warming.

  • University of British Columbia Museum of AnthropologyUniversity of British Columbia Museum of Anthropology Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
    The Anthropology museum that is located on the campus of the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, is well known for its dramatic displays of world cultures and arts, especially those of the First Nations peoples of the Pacific Northwest coast First Nations. The museum has grown into a first class destination, because the museum is also a teaching one, with many courses at the university, as well as being a research museum. The museum began in 1947, when numerous ethnographic collectibles were shown in the basement of the main library, as a collection with Dr. Harry Hawthorn becoming the first director and his wife, Dr. Audrey Hawthorn becoming the first curator. The museum would get some funding from the government and university in 1971, for the construction of a new building, and by 1976, it opened under the directorship of Michael Amers, who would continue in that capacity until 1997. Marianne and Walter Koerner donated their huge collection of northwest First Nations art, in 1975, which would become a big part of the new building's collections. This new structure was designed by well known Canadian architect Arthur Erickson, who had been inspired b the post-and-beam architecture of the First Nations people, although it is made of concrete like the majority of his designs.  The most notable piece in the museum is considered to be the yellow cedar sculpture called the "Raven and the First Men" by Bill Reid, which is showcased on the Canadian twenty dollar bill. Other of this excellent sculptor's works include his gold jewelry, his Bear and Wasco (sea wolf) sculptures and a prototype of the Haida dugout canoe that he created for the Expo 86. There are numerous big Musqueam relics from the latter 19th and early 20th centuries, and quite a few contemporary works that were commissioned from the Musqueam artists like Robyn and Debra Sparrow, Joe Becker and Susan Point. The museum's great hall has numerous fragments of totem poles from the Haida and other First Nations villages that existed along the province's coastline. It also has a great collection from the South Pacific, and a huge textile collection that contains 6000 textiles, half of these coming from Asia. The Cantonese Opera costumes are thought to be some of the best in the world, will outstanding examples from Africa, Oceania, South America and the northwest coast. Their historic photograph collection contains about 90,000 pieces that span many cultures, historical events and ethnographic subjects. This collection begins as early as the 1890s, and has become a wonderful resource for writers, communities and researchers. The African collection has about 2800 relics, while the Asian collection contains thousands of beautiful relics from the orient. It is a magnificent museum that also has Haida houses outside the museum that were built under the leadership of Bill Reid, who carved, along with Douglas Cranmer, many of the totem poles that encompass the houses. 

  •  Cypress Mountain
    Cypress Mountain is one of the main ski locations in the Cypress National Park in West Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, containing 47 alpine ski runs and 19 km cross country trails. There are snowshoe tours, night skiing, ski schools, a cafeteria, lounge, retail shops and rental shop. While the ski area is shut down in the summer, the are still many marvelous hiking trails that you can wander around in the park with excellent views of wildlife and forests. The Cypress Bowl held many of the 2010 Winter Olympic events, with the downhill runs constructed on two mountains; Mt. Strachan and Black Mountain. The ski area has two high speed detachable quad chairlifts, two double chairlifts and two fixed-grip quad chairs. A terrain park named Bell Power Park is close by, with a new base lodge being completed in 2008, that is a much more convenient spot by the base of the Eagle Express and Lions Express chairlifts. In the 2010 Winter Olympics, Cypress hosted all of the freestyle skiing and snowboarding competitions, with the half pipe and other venues for the moguls and aerials finished in 2007. It was most unfortunate that the warmest January on record should occur during the Olympics, but that just meant more work for the organizers and their crews that had to work continuously to bring in snow from other areas, by truck and then helicopter, as well as having to use dry ice to stop the constant melting.

  • Vancouver Art Gallery Vancouver Art Gallery Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
    The Vancouver Art Gallery (VAG) is the fifth biggest in the nation, and the biggest in western Canada; located in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and contains a permanent collection of 10,000 works that include over 200 important works by the Group of Seven, Emily Carr and illustrations by Marc Chagall. The gallery began in 1931, and was located on Georgia Street, moving in 1983 to the former provincial courthouse, remodeled by the architect Arthur Erickson and $20 million. Arthur build his well known three city block complex called Robson Square, and the gallery, sitting on the north block, has an underground walkway that goes to an outdoor plaza, the University of British Columbia's downtown satellite campus, restaurants, government offices and the south end's new law courts. The art gallery is 41,400 square feet, with its most notable collection being the Emily Carr. It also houses a huge collection of photographs, and hosts many traveling exhibits; contains a library, gift shop and cafe. The former courthouse that contains the gallery is 165,000 square feet, and the neoclassical structure was designed by Francis Rattenbury, who won the design contest in 1905. There are marvelous ionic columns, formal porticos, ornamental stonework and a central dome; built with marble from Vermont, Alaska and Tennessee. On the western side, Thomas Hopper designed an addition, and this annex was the only building that wasn't converted to an art gallery. The entire building was designated a heritage site and still has the original judges' benches and walls that were used when it was a court. The Centennial Fountain is located on the Georgia Street side, which was created to honor the centennial of the union of the colonies of British Columbia and Vancouver Island. The art collection represents the most inclusive resource for visual culture in the province and since its beginning in 1931, has grown with some hundreds of works being added each year since. The gallery has become the main repository for artworks created in the province, as well as those works that have been created by other Canadians and international artists. Celebrating its 75th anniversary, the gallery published an online catalogue with 75 outstanding works from its collections; and in 2007, it told of its plans to move into a new building, that once was a bus depot, adjacent to the Queen Elizabeth theater, and include 320,000 square feet of exhibit space, that included 10 times the current space, with more room for the main collection that is in storage presently, more children's and community programs; better display space and more improved storage, with a much bigger space for international works.

  • Cathedral GroveCathedral Grove Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
    MacMillan Provincial Park is located on Vancouver Island, that is famous for its Cathedral Grove, one of the most available stands of huge giant Douglas-fir trees in the province, becoming one of the most favorite places for locals and visitors to go and enjoy the enormous trees that have grown here for centuries, many close to a millennia, and make them all realize how small we really are in the scheme of things, and the magnificence of the natural wonders that surround you on all sides. The are looping trails on both sides of the highway that takes you into the dense thick forest with the biggest Douglas fir trees on the continent, with one measuring over 13 feet across. The northern side trail meanders through the groves of ancient western red cedar and onto the shores of Lake Cameron. The spectacular sight of the majestic western hemlock, western red cedar, grand fir and Douglas fir is an awesome sight, with much of the region being cleaned since the terrible windstorm that came through here in 1997 and destroyed so many big trees, and the trails that wandered around them. Quite a few ended up on the ground, but that just has opened more light space to filter through into the forest floor, allowing more nutrients to be available for those trees that still stand. There have been many attempts by the environmental groups to stop the logging of these great trees, but they still cut, threatening the park's ecosystem, as well as a wind barrier that would have kept some of the harder winds from going into the dark recesses of the forest and its treasure of huge trees. As the restoration of trails continues after the storm's passage, there are some trees that have been cut in pieces for better walking or traveling, as well as giving the visitor some ideas as to how old these monstrosities are, by counting the rings on the downed logs. There are many animals that call these woods home, like the deer, elk, woodpeckers, owls, black bear, cougar, reptiles, amphibians and insects, and the marvelous fish that swim along in the Cameron river, which contains, fantastic trout, like brown, rainbow and cutthroat trout. Well known forester, H. R. MacMillan gave the land to the public in 1944, so that they could come here and see the magnificent majesty of these gorgeous trees and measuring almost 400 acres.

  • Chinese Cultural Center Museum and ArchiveChinese Cultural Center Museum and Archive Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
