Vancouver's short-but-funky history comes to life at this seaside museum. The war-years gallery remembers some poignant episodes involving the Japanese internment, as well as local stories of the war effort. The 1950s Gallery has a 1955 Ford Fairlane Victoria and a Seeburg select-o-matic jukebox. The 1960s-theme Revolution Gallery revisits the city's days as the hippie capital of Canada: visitors can hear local bands from the '60s and poke around a re-created communal
house. The museum regularly mounts intriguing temporary exhibits and hosts lectures and other public events.
