Recollecting Expo ’86

Expo ’86 was a game changer for Vancouver and remains one of the largest public event ever held in British Columbia. Attracting over 22 million visitors, Expo ’86 gave Vancouver international stature and transformed us into a bold city with boundless potential. With Recollecting Expo ’86 – a small display in the MOV studio – the Museum of Vancouver marks the 30th anniversary of the opening of the 1986 World Exposition on Transportation and Communication. It also spotlights the important role of collectors as memory keepers. This display presents a fraction of Pete Visscher’s impressive collection of Expo 86 memorabilia.


As a member you can also submit nominations for Elected Directors.

Nominations for Elected Directors need to be made 30 days prior to the Annual General Meeting.
