The Beaty Biodiversity Museum

The Beaty Biodiversity Museum is Vancouver’s natural history museum on the campus of the University of British Columbia. Among our two million treasured specimens are Canada’s largest blue whale skeleton and myriad fossils, shells, insects, fungi, mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and plants from across the globe.

We strive to inspire an understanding of biodiversity, its origins, and importance to humans through collections-based research, education, and outreach. The museum works to promote a greater sense of collective responsibility for the biodiversity of British Columbia, Canada, and the world.

Through daily activities, special events, and rotating feature exhibitions visitors can increase their knowledge and understanding of the interconnectedness of all life on Earth.

Note: gallery hours are subject to change, please call to verify hours before visiting
