About This Attraction

Museum of Vancouver

Founded in 1894, the Art, Historical and Scientific Association of Vancouver (they were fond of long titles back then) developed the first exhibit the what we now know as the Museum of Vancouver. The museum has undergone several moves and iterations, and in 1968 it opened in its current location at Vanier Park within the neighbourhood of Kitsilano. The museum is touted as the largest civic museum in Canada, and in addition to providing a historical record of the development of Vancouver and the surrounding area, several exhibits are intended to spark conversation of what the city could become. And given Canada’s extensive history with the First Nations of the west coast – indeed, the museum is actually built on unceded lands of the Coast Salish People – much of the collection at the museum is representative of the Pacific Northwest Coast First Nations.

Hop-On With Us


If you prefer to move at your own pace we have you covered. Hop off our Hop-On, Hop-Off PARK Route at Stop P14 Museum of Vancouver. It's your adventure, on your time.

Variety is the spice of life, so for each of our Hop-on Hop-off tours we dish it up and you get to choose. We operate two types of vehicles, and while both buses travel the same routes, each offers a very different tour experience. Of course, we suggest you take the time to enjoy both, but we won't make you. Channelling the spirit of San Francisco, our Trolley's will have you ready for a jolly time. The driver will provide you with live commentary of your tour, lending a local's authentic take on the magic that makes Vancouver great. But as fun as our trolley tours are, our clear-top buses are equally special. Your view of the city will be like no other as you tour the streets with the wind in your hair, experiencing our vibrant downtown with all of your senses. You will be accompanied by a recorded commentary that is available in multiple languages.
