Museum of Anthropology
Named one of Canada’s most significant buildings in 2011, The Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia is world-renowned for its collections, research, teaching, public programs, and community connections. With a mission, “To inspire understanding of and respect for world arts and cultures” and an outstanding collection of First Nation materials, it’s not surprising that it is ranked, #4 of 163 attractions in Vancouver by Trip Advisor.

Squamish L’il wat Cultural Center
Conceived in 1997, with plans formalized in 2001 with the signing of the unique Protocol Agreement between two First Nations (the only one of its kind in Canada), this spectacular center attempts to convey the people’s shared values around preserving and sharing their traditional cultures. A not for profit initiative where all proceeds are invested in training and cultural revitalization programs for the Squamish and L’il wat Nations.
