Museum of Vancouver

Vancouver Venue

The Museum of Vancouver (MOV) creates Vancouver-focused exhibitions and programs that encourage dynamic conversations about what was, is, and can be Vancouver. Permanent exhibitions tell the city’s stories from the early 1900s to the late 1970s and are complemented by contemporary, groundbreaking feature exhibits.

Since its rebranding in 2009 the MOV has become a leader in the reimagining of museums. Our exhibitions are Vancouver centric and designed to make the viewer think not just about the objects, but their greater context. We've played host to two Venice Biennale in Architecture projects. We've even gone so far as to hire a Curator of Contemporary Issues. We are a bold, contemporary museum, and we can't wait for you to visit.

Add cultural cachet to your next event. The Museum of Vancouver’s facilities combine prestige with versatility and are ideal for your next conference or special event. Our one-of-a-kind building, situated only steps away from legendary Kitsilano Beach and surrounded by the lush Vanier Park, boasts stellar views of the ocean and mountains. The MOV is a not-for-profit educational and cultural institution, rental revenue is put towards the fulfillment of our mission to deliver provocative educational programs and services to the thousands of visitors and students we engage each year.
