With physical distancing in mind, our experienced program interpreters will take small social groups on a guided tour of the Museum’s dazzling Grand Hall.
This engaging tour looks at the architecture, art and history of the Indigenous peoples of Canada’s West Coast. It includes information on the Museum’s construction and its symbolic architecture, and looks at the work of renowned Indigenous artists such as Alex Janvier and Bill Reid. The tour also includes interesting anecdotes about how the Grand Hall’s iconic totem poles and house fronts were manoeuvered into place.
Access is on a first-come, first-served basis for visitors within their two-hour timed admission ticket. Tours leave from the Panorama Café near the Museum entrance. Each tour lasts approximately 30 minutes and is limited to a maximum of nine people. Physical distancing will be maintained between social groups and masks are mandatory.
