Side Trips

The Vancouver Committee is presently working on organizing three Side Trips:

  • Tuesday, March 26, A Day Trip to Victoria
    Victoria is the capital of BC and is located on Vancouver Island. The bus trip would include a ferry ride through the scenic Gulf Islands. More information to follow.
  • Wednesday, March 27, Babes in the Woods Cold Case Tour
    This is one of Vancouver’s most famous cold cases: the discovery of the remains of two children in Stanley Park in 1953. Although many police hours were spent on the investigation, the murderer was never found. This would be a half-day trip around Stanley Park and then a visit to the Vancouver Police Museum, which is the oldest police museum in North America. Forensic evidence from the case is on display. The Police Museum is in a heritage building which used to be the City Morgue. Many TV shows and movies are filmed here, including X-Files. Because the building is old, there is no elevator and it is not wheelchair accessible.
  • Sunday, March 31, Museum of Anthropology at UBC
    This would be a Sunday afternoon trip. The Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia campus in Vancouver houses one of the world’s finest displays of Northwest Coast First Nations arts in a spectacular Arthur Erickson designed building overlooking mountains and sea.
