The six cultural institutions of Vanier Park will once again celebrate their beautiful Kits Point location for the Second Annual Winter Wander. On Saturday, January 26, explore all six for one low admission price.

“We had such a wonderful turn out at our first Winter Wander that we’ve been looking forward to doing it again all year,” says Simon Robinson, Executive Director of the Vancouver Maritime Museum “For us, it’s a great way to showcase what’s down here in Vanier Park, and to work together as institutions. This park and its venues are truly a Vancouver treasure.”

Vanier Park is home to the Vancouver Maritime Museum, the Museum of Vancouver, the H.R. MacMillan Space Centre, Bard on the Beach, the Vancouver Academy of Music, and the City of Vancouver Archives.

Once you’ve purchased a ticket at either the Museum of Vancouver, H.R. Macmillan Space Centre or Vancouver Maritime Museum, take your entry card to each location to receive a stamp. Completed stamps will be collected at the end of the day for a chance to win museum memberships and other great prizes.
