totems: museum of anthropology


museum of anthropology vancouver 001


The Museum of Anthropology is stunning. I went there for the second time on the weekend, this time showing it off to my visiting mother and stepfather. I love taking in the calm of the reflection pool out back, which you can see through the windows of these photos. I've talked about this museum before, but it truly is one of my favorite spots to visit in Vancouver.
(sorry for the fingerprint in the middle of every shot — doh!)

Go if you ever get the chance, the great hall alone is worth seeing in person.

It really is a beautiful museum. I love the beautiful landscaping at the back of the building as well. Great place to take visitors!

Perfect for a nice slow day, plus beautiful surroundings to wander through when you're done in the museum. Love it.

I just love looking at totems. They also have a great collection at the Museum of Civilization - we'll need to visit next time you're here.
