MONOVA: Museum of North Vancouver is opening in 2021

We are hard at work developing North Vancouver’s newest public museum and we’re getting very close to opening the doors to you.

Later in 2021, we invite you to join us in the Shipyards District in a brand new 16,000 sq. ft. facility where we plan to ignite curious minds through powerful stories of North Vancouver.


MONOVA will transform the way we experience North Vancouver’s stories.

At the new Museum, you will find yourself drawn in to landscapes you knew nothing about, meeting people from different eras and contemplating what it all means for our future.

Join us in supporting this exciting work. Learn more in the Case for Support.

We rely on donations to help bring North Vancouver’s stories to life, expand our community’s archival and museum collections, build learning experiences and inspire future generations.

Strategic Plan

Becoming a community hub means asking a wide range of people what they want and need from their Museum and Archives. It also means having a deep knowledge of cultural spaces and offerings already available in our community, and knowing how we can magnify these with our own activities.

Representing years of visioning, self-scrutiny and consultation with stakeholders and our wider community, MONOVA’s 2020-2023 Strategic Plan is now available. Read more about the making of the strategic plan.
