Guided Tour of the Grand Hall

Plan Your Visit

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.

With our timed online ticketing, tickets are limited and are available in two-hour blocks. We highly recommend that you book online to secure your spot. You can book your tickets for free general admission as early as Monday of the week you would like to visit. If tickets are sold out, please visit our website next Monday to join us for the week that follows.

Book your free general admission online today.
