The 1960s building itself is quite striking, and James and I enjoyed wandering around the grounds after visiting each attraction.
The popular crab sculpture, with its pincers raised above its head, reaches 6 metres tall and was created by George Norris.
I love this time of year when, after months of rain, Vancouver comes to life with beautiful blossoms.
Vanier Park sits on False Creek and looks across to downtown Vancouver and the coastal mountains.
I remember spending time at Vanier Park as a child. My father would take my sister and me to fly our brightly coloured kite with its long tail that fluttered in the wind behind it.
I still have a few posts to write about the exhibits inside the museums, and these should be up over the next week or so.
In the meantime..
