Sometimes the best sort of entertainment comes in the form of education. Vancouver is a wealth of culture and history. From historic landmarks in gastown and beyond, to exhibits and shows that call Vancouver home, either temporarily or permanently. Whether you’re looking to admire beautiful art or get lost in an ancient civilization, Vancouver never fails to deliver, and that’s why it’s one of the best places to visit in Canada! Here are just a few cultural highlights happening in our beautiful city this November …
Beyond King Tut Immersive Experience
If you do absolutely nothing else this November, you should at least treat yourself to an experience that plants you straight in the middle of ancient Egypt—unlocking a story over three thousand years in the making. The Beyond King Tut Immersive Experience features nine distinct multi-sensory galleries that take you through the story of King Tut’s life and his death. Fun and informative for the whole family, the exhibit will be on display at the Vancouver Convention Center from November through to January. Learn more.
Possibly one of the most recognizable buildings in Vancouver, Science World has been a staple of the city for years. With its shiny golf ball-esque design, the center boasts a number of floors, rooms, and rotating exhibits to explore. You can learn first hand and hands-on about physics and biology while interacting with exhibits and machines that make learning fun for all ages. The current rotating exhibit is T-Rex: The Ultimate Predator and takes a look at the most famous dinosaur in the world. Learn more.
Museum of Vancouver
The Museum of Vancouver made some drastic changes in the past two years and now offers both in-person and virtual exhibits for all to enjoy. Many exhibits remain on permanent rotation, while others are switched out on a regular basis to provide variety and opportunity for visitors to learn about a wide range of cultural highlights and oddities in equal measure.
