Unique Spaces


Treasures of the BC Coast Exhibit

Our Treasures of the BC Coast exhibit features a sampling of marine habitats along British Columbia’s coast. Large, scenic photos set the scene for each habitat, where animals that live there are on display. This exhibit is also home to the iconic Pacific giant octopus, as well as surprisingly colourful cold-water corals.
