What people are saying:

A nice natural history and biodiversity building with an impressive blue whale in the entrance hall. Unusual in the sense it is more a collection of samples on display than exhibits. Not great for kids as it's a bit detailed but an interesting place for adults.

    Another great cultural/science visit in the UBC area. A lot of information and examples of animals, plants and other beings in this museum. But after a while it turns into the same thing over and ove...
