Beaty biodiversity museum

Only open for public preview visits, UBC's newest attraction showcases the university's wealth of natural history exhibits, including two million specimens that have never before been available for public viewing. Fossil, fish and herbarium galleries are included but the museum's main draw is the 25m blue whale skeleton, artfully displayed in a two-story glass gallery. The whale washed ashore on Canada's eastern coastline and was trucked across the country – to much media curiosity – in 2009. [source: lonelyplanet]

Thank you very much Alex!
