Vancouver. For The Curious. The Museum of Vancouver (MOV) creates Vancouver-focused exhibitions and programs that encourage dynamic conversations about what was, is, and can be Vancouver. Permanent exhibitions tell the city’s stories from the early 1900s to the late 1970s and are complemented by contemporary, groundbreaking feature exhibits. The MOV is located in scenic Vanier Park in Kitsilano, set against a spectacular vista of ocean, city skyline, and mountains.
