Totem Poles, Vancouver
(4.3/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
Admire the artistry of Totem Poles, a collection of nine separate First Nations totems set in an attractive and accessible location. Tall, colorful, and strikingly carved, the totems tell their own story, as distinct in message as they appear in design. Head to the onsite visitor center to learn about the meanings behind each structure, as well as the overall history of totem poles among indigenous peoples. Carved by people from Haida Gwaii, Alert Bay, and the Squamish Nation, the artworks date back as far as the late 1880s. The collection began in the 1920s and has been added to at particular junctures since, to celebrate anniversaries and other events. Plan to see Totem Poles and other attractions that appeal to you using our Vancouver itinerary planner.

  • 當你訪問溫哥華,你必須來到斯坦利公園,停在圖騰柱。這個地區有一個很大的圖騰集合點。一些是美麗新設計的,其他是更舊的集合。在這公園的角落,你可以看到市中心和北岸的景色。 
  • I loved these totems. Really interesting carvings that appeared authentic with a nice gift shop and bathrooms adjacent. 
  • Recommend making a quick stop to see this attraction, because it does not demand a lot of time. She is free and close there is a gift shop where you can buy souvenirs.

  • If you are visiting Vancouver, this is an absolute must! Not just the totem poles, but Stanely Park in general! You will get great views of the city with nature all around you. Rent a bike and ride along the sea wall. Or take a ride in a horse drawn carriage. Or just go for a leisurely stroll and learn more about the city of Vancouver by reading the many plaques and historical markers around the park. This is truly one of my favourite places in Vancouver.
  • These totem poles are very artistic and well carved out. If you're at Stanley Park, you should definitely come stop and take a look for yourself.
  • Great place to hang out in the park. Beautiful scenery and nice little shops nearby. its a very nice place!
  • Pretty cool place. If you're going to Stanley Park, this is a must stop. Very impressive and full of history.
  • Interesting collection of totem poles. Worth a stop if you're in Stanley Park. BUT: If you have a specific interest in totem poles, put the Museum of Anthropology (across town at the University of British Columbia campus) higher on your list. The totem poles at the museum are incredible, as is the entire collection.
