Family Day for Members

MOA welcomes members to celebrate Family Day on Sunday February 8.

After exploring  c̓əsnaʔəm, the city before the city, an exhibit told entirely from the first-person perspectives of Musqueam community members both past and present, members have the opportunity to participate in hands-on activities relating to the exhibition. Kids can try their hand at weaving on a loom, learn about the importance of local native plants, and interact with archaeological materials from c̓əsnaʔəm, an ancient ancestral Musqueam village. This event is for members only.



Two UBC food trucks will be parked outside the museum from 11am to 3pm to sell tasty bites made fresh on the spot.

The Dog House: Home of the West Coast hot dog. Juicy, all-beef Nathan’s Famous Dogs from Coney Island. Perfect for game days and every other day.
Roaming Bowl: Asian noodle and rice bowls made fresh. Chicken, beef and vegetarian options.



Also on view at the museum is PIGAPICHA! 100 Years of Studio Photography in Nairobi, a deeply moving exhibition that showcases more than 180 portraits including those carefully staged in the studio as well as those quickly taken on the streets of Nairobi. As part of the exhibition, visitors can take a photo in the PIGAPICHA photo booth. Photos tagged and shared using #PigaPichaMOA are automatically projected onto a gallery wall, thus selfies or family portraits become part of the exhibition.

In addition, photos tagged #MOAFamilyDay and shared on Instagram will be automatically printed by Instapix Vancouver.

Note that Instagram profiles must be public. Instagrammers are invited to pick up their photos to take home at no charge.
