New: Museum Collection Tour 
Dive deep into one of the six collections that make up the museum: TetrapodsMarine Invertebrates, Herbarium, Entomology, Fish, or Fossils. Discover stories about BC species, research, and how organisms in the collection of your choice relate to others.

This introductory tour will teach you about the different specimens in the collection, along with stories about the people that have contributed to it. After a brief tour, your group will head to the Discovery Lab to get hands-on with specimens from the collection.

About the Museum
The Beaty Biodiversity Museum strives to inspire an understanding of biodiversity, its origins, and importance to humans through collections-based research, education and outreach. As Vancouver’s natural history museum, we work to promote a greater sense of collective responsibility for the biodiversity of British Columbia, Canada, and the world. The unique combination of world-class research, paired with beautiful, compelling exhibits, strives to make the research conducted at UBC more accessible to the public.
Explore the university’s spectacular biological collections, with 20,000 square feet of exhibits showcasing over 500 permanent exhibits. Among our two million treasured specimens are a 26-metre-long blue whale skeleton suspended in the atrium, the third-largest fish collection in Canada, and myriad fossils, shells, insects, fungi, mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and plants from around BC and across the world.
