Vancouver Museum

 

From its modest beginnings over a century ago, the Vancouver Museum continues to build bridges between generations, cultures and philosophies. Through partnerships with schools, colleges, universities and community groups, the Museum is committed to continuing education.

In the spring of 1894, a group of visionaries formed the Art, historical and scientific Association. Using borrowed artifacts and space they opened Vancouver's first museum Exhibition. A banner invited visitors to view "Paintings and Curios".

The City Museum, and its collection, moved in 1905 to the Carnegie Library at Main and Hastings.

In 1968, the Museum moved into its current landmark building on the south shore of False Creek in what is now known as Vanier Park. That same year it was renamed the Centennial Museum.
