Museum of Vancouver and its collection

Museum of Vancouver

The Museum of Vancouver (MOV) (formerly the Vancouver Museum and prior to that the Centennial Museum ) is a civic history museum located in Vanier Park , Vancouver , British Columbia . The MOV is the largest civic museum in Canada and the oldest museum in Vancouver . The museum was founded in 1894 and went through a number of iterations before being rebranded as the Museum of Vancouver in 2009. It creates Vancouver-focused exhibitions and programs that encourage conversations about what was, is, and can be Vancouver. It shares an entrance and foyer with the H. R. MacMillan Space Centre but the MOV is much larger and occupies the vast majority of the space in the building complex where both organisations sit as well as separate collections storage facilities in another building.
