Vancouver's Story Begins Here.

The Museum of Vancouver (MOV) connects Vancouverites to each other and connects the city to the world. An enthusiastic civic advocate, MOV is dedicated to encouraging a deeper understanding of Vancouver through stories, objects and shared experiences. MOV is an independent, non-profit organization that seeks partners to support the evolution of the Museum’s visitor experience.

Our vision is to inspire a socially connected, civically engaged city.

We acknowledge the Museum of Vancouver is located on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Tsleil-Waututh and Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Nations, at the site of the ancestral Village of Sen̓áḵw – neighbouring the current Sḵwx̱wú7mesh reserve of the same name.
