Permanent Exhibits

Fall in love with the diversity of life as you explore over 500 natural history exhibits, showcasing myriad fossils, shells, insects, fungi, mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and plants from around British Columbia and the world.

Our specimens are organised in six collections, which form the centrepiece of the Beaty Biodiversity Museum. Over two million research specimens are housed in our museum, and specially designed windows give you unique glimpses into just a few of the stories that these specimens have to tell.
