Join us for the opening celebration
c̓əsnaʔəm, the city before the city 
Opening January 25
Join MOA, the Musqueam First Nation, and the Museum of Vancouver for a series of groundbreaking exhibitions that will connect Vancouverites with the living legacy of c̓əsnaʔəm, the ancient villages and burial sites upon which the city of Vancouver is built. Highlighting language, oral history, and the community’s recent actions to protect c̓əsnaʔəm, the exhibitions invite visitors to engage with the long and dynamic history of the land. MOA’s exhibit will feature 3D modelling of maps and artifacts, original videography, family-friendly interactivity, and soundscapes blending traditional and modern sounds.

We invite our members and friends to join us for the opening celebration on January 25 (1-4pm). The event is free and open to everyone.
