Museum of Anthropology – University of British Columbia

In May 2011 I was in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. I took a day trip  out to the excellent Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia. Architecturally the museum itself is impressive but the collection of totems, masks and other archeological and ethnographic artefacts, especially those from the First Nations are the jewel in the crown.
