Whale Station Upgrades!

If you happened to visit the museum in the past couple of weeks, you may have noticed that our whale station has received an upgrade! With new, touchable specimens, an interactive media display, and more educational information about blue whales, it's worth visiting the museum again to check it out! Especially since . . .
Free Admission for Educators
Did you know that you can receive complimentary admission for you and one guest whenever you visit the museum? Show ID or proof of membership with a teacher association, such as the BCTF or an accredited home learner association to our admissions desk when you arrive. Use this to get familiar with the museum before class trip, check out the new exhibitions, or experience the museum with friends or family. 
Spring Break Activities

Spring break is just around the corner and we have a different hands-on activity every day that we're open between March 17 and April 1. These drop-in activities start at 12:00 pm, unless otherwise noted on our website, and are included with museum admission or membership. 
Check out our round-up blog post or events calendar for the full listing of activities available.
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.
