Unbelievable: Secret, Rare & Amazing Treasures!

June 24, 2017 - September 24, 2017

On the occasion of Canada's 150th anniversary, we're diving deep into our vault and showcasing some of Vancouver's most valuable treasures. 

Unbelievable features contested objects, storied replicas and, iconic artifacts for a mind-bending exploration of the role stories play in defining community – and what happens when these tales can not be relied upon.  

We currently live in a post-truth world full of fake news, alternative facts and falsehoods, where literally nothing can be taken at face value. In Unbelievable, we will look at the contradictory and unbelievable stories behind treasured artifacts challenging visitors to look differently at the world and facts. 






The Museum of Vancouver is grateful to the partners, sponsors, and institutional funders that made it possible to share City on Edge with you.
