Getting to us by Car

The closest parking is located in the West Parkade, one block west of the museum across West Mall. For parking rates and alternate parking options, see UBC Visitor Parking. Please be aware that Main Mall and University Boulevard are pedestrian-only areas.

Walking from the West Parkade: exit the parkade and walk toward West Mall, along the east side of the parkade. After you cross West Mall, walk west toward the Earth Sciences Building. Walk up the stairs and turn right as you approach the building. Walk between the Earth Sciences Building (on your left) and the Earth and Ocean Sciences Main Building (on your right). Once you approach the courtyard, turn right toward the entrance to the Museum.

Getting to us by Public Transit

UBC can be accessed by public transit (Busses that come to UBC include 4, 14, 25, 33, 43, 44, 84, 99, and 480). The Pacific Museum of Earth is a 10 minute walk from the bus loops. See the UBC transportation website for the most up-to-date bus stop relocations.

Getting to us by Bicycle

You can access UBC by bike from 10th Ave./University Blvd. along a separate bike lane. Once you arrive on campus, go straight through the intersection of University Blvd. and Wesbrook Mall, following the indicated bike path. Go straight through the end of University Boulevard, slow down and yield to pedestrians. Go straight at East Mall, heading up along the side of the water feature. Turn left on Main Mall, heading south. The museum will be on your right (directly across from the Beaty Biodiversity Museum). The Earth Sciences Building (ESB) is directly on Main Mall and the Earth and Ocean Sciences Main Building is just behind ESB. There are plenty of bike racks near the entrance to both of these buildings.
