The Museum of Anthropology at UBC is reopening today after an 18-month closure with a complete rebuilding of its iconic Great Hall. Doors will open at 5 p.m. with two new feature exhibitions, a new ceramics installation and new carvings in the Great Hall.

The museum's reopening marks the successful completion of cutting-edge seismic upgrades, plus the revitalization and reinterpretation of displays of Northwest Coast Indigenous carvings, poles, weavings and other works from the past and present.

From 5 to 9 p.m., visitors will be welcomed by traditional Coast Salish song and dance by Tsatsu Stalqayu Coastal Wolf Pack, plus remarks from invited speakers. Admission is free.

Then, from Friday, June 14 through Sunday, June 16, MOA is hosting a full, extended weekend of family-friendly fun to celebrate the reopening. Visitors will be treated to dance and music performances, hands-on workshops, staff tours, plus food trucks and half-priced admission.

One lucky Tyee reader will win four admission tickets to MOA to use at their leisure, plus a copy of the Museum of Anthropology catalogue, a stunning and lavishly illustrated volume which highlights 150 treasures from MOA's vast collections. Enter to win below.

Come see MOA, reimagined, and be among the first to visit the newly upgraded museum.
