Vancouver Museums and Galleries

Travel through space and into the deep seas, get a taste of Zen living or take in contemporary and historical artwork from around the world at some of the innovative and inspirational Vancouver art galleries and museums. Visitors to the H.R. MacMillan Space Centre can travel through space in the Virtual VoyagesTM simulator and explore the great beyond with a variety of demonstrations at the planetarium, as well as other exhibits and multi-media shows. The Pacific Coast and the ocean’s great animal kingdom are the celebrated subjects of the Vancouver Maritime Museum and the Vancouver Aquarium, two of the most popular museums in Vancouver. The Dr. Sun Yat Sen Classical Chinese Garden is the first authentic classical Chinese garden ever built outside of China, and offers a quiet and enchanting retreat, while the Vancouver Museum offers insight into the city’s own rich cultural heritage. For a world-class contemporary and classical art excursion, the Vancouver Art Gallery is a must.
