Thunderbird Park


On the corner of Douglas and Belleville Streets, outside the Royal BC Museum, a collection of brightly colored totem poles pose an ideal photo opportunity. Visitors are welcome to view the historic landmarks at Thunderbird Park daily, free of charge, from dawn to dusk. The Northwest Coast poles were placed here in 1940 and were re-carved, after decaying, between 1950 and 1990. A ceremonial house called Wawadit'la was erected in 1953 and the most recent pole, Kwakwaka, was added in 2000.
