The Museum of Anthropology (MOA) at the University of British Columbia, located in Vancouver, is a fantastic place for family travel. The facility offers many exhibits that both adults and kids will enjoy.

Starting on April 7, guests can check out the Carl Beam exhibit. Beam was an Aboriginal artist that played a large role in developing the art of Canada's First Nations. The exhibition will display 50 of his best pieces, such as his large scale paintings, ceramics, videos and many other creations.

Travellers who visit the museum in June will have the chance to see "Inuit Prints: Japanese Inspiration," which showcases rare and unique prints from Japan and Cape Dorset Nunavut during the late 50s and early 60s. The exhibit explores how James Houston, a Canadian artist, discovered the beautiful pieces and how they are important in art today.

After guests view the facility they grab lunch at the Cafe MOA, which serves up plenty of fresh sandwiches and salads. They can also visit the MOA shop and purchase, jewelry, books and prints.

Visitors can attend the museum Tuesday through Sunday from 10 AM to 5 PM.
