beaty logo red The Beaty Biodiversity Museum is Vancouver’s natural history museum. We work to promote a greater understanding of, and collective responsibility for, the biodiversity of BC, Canada, and the World. Come visit us on UBC campus – we’re located at 2212 Main Mall, Vancouver, BC. You can find more info at Follow us @beatymuseum on Twitter & Instagram and like us on Facebook.

The Beaty Biodiversity Museum has now been on instagram for over a year! We enjoy sharing behind the scenes looks in our labs, featuring curators, showing off our favourite objects, and of course we can’t resist things organized neatly. Thanks to our followers for all the love this past year. We look forward to sharing more @beatymuseum!

If you are visiting the museum share your instagrams with #beatymuseum to get some love from us! We’ve got a selfie stick to take whalfies with (selfie + whale = whalfie) and one in the shutterbug exhibition where you can dress up like a bug and snap a selfie as a #beatybug.
