Vancouver is comprised of many different neighbourhoods, each with their own unique flare and character. No matter what you’re looking for in a home, Vancouver has a region for you. At Team Nickerson we love all of Vancouver, but our Kitsilano realtors hold a special spot in their hearts for the area. This beachside, former hippie neighbourhood is now home to many young professionals and families and has a ton to offer them. Of particular interest are three museums in Vancouver that help to make place the world-class city it is today. As you work with our Kitsilano realtors to find your dream home, make sure to take a day and explore one of these local favourites!
The H.R. MacMillan Space Centre is without a doubt one of the coolest museums in Vancouver, if not all of Canada. Complete with interactive exhibits that allow visitors the opportunity to handle a real meteorite and one of the only touchable moon rocks in the world, a mind-blowing live science theatre, and awe-inspiring planetarium, one day at the Space Centre simply isn’t enough. Thankfully for Kitsilano realtors and residents, this awesome and dynamic institution is right in their own backyard!
Perhaps Vancouver’s most engaging and intriguing museum with a historical focus is the Vancouver Maritime Museum. With an ever-changing carousel of exhibits and events, there is always something exciting happening in this corner of Kitsilano. Current highlights of the museum include exhibits on The Franklin Exploration, The Lost Fleet, and Captain Vancouver goes to Chile. Of course, come August, The Vancouver Maritime Museum is also one of the best places in town to soak up the magic of Vancouver’s Fire & Light Fireworks Night.
Vancouver is an eclectic city with a storied history worth learning about. Thankfully, at the Museum of Vancouver, you can do just that. MOV is home to a variety of Vancouver-centric exhibitions and installations as well as many events and programs that add immeasurable flavor and excitement to Kitsilano and Vancouver as a whole. After settling into the neighborhood, head down the street to learn a bit about your new home!
Kitsilano has a lot to offer potential homebuyers, and Team Nickerson’s Kitsilano realtors are here to help you find your perfect match. While the building itself is important, so is the neighbourhood. After exploring the beauty and magic of Kitsilano you will soon discover it is the perfect place to call home!
