About the institution

MOA houses some 36,000 ethnographic objects, as well as 535,000 archaeological objects under the care of UBC’s Laboratory of Archaeology. The ethnographic materials derive from many parts of the world, including the South Pacific, Asia, Africa, Europe, and the Americas. There are approximately 6,000 objects from B.C’s First Nations in MOA’s collections; we also house 5,000 textiles from around the world, 3,500 coins, and 4,400 works on paper/made of paper. An additional 700 objects are at any one time on temporary exhibit at MOA, loaned to other institutions, undergoing conservation work, or under consideration by students and researchers.
