If You Try and Sneak in, Cylons Will Get You

February 29, 2008

The question we get asked most often is “Can I get a tour of CIC or Adama’s quarters?” The simple answer is: no.

All of the interior sequences of Battlestar Galactica are shot at Vancouver Film Studios. The studio is not open to the public. You can only get a tour of the set if you know someone who works on the show…and quite frankly, we’re not that well connected. If you want to get a typical Vancouverite’s view of the studio, hop on our Skytrain and head out on the Millennium Line between Rupert and Gilmore stations. The elevated track runs right over both Vancouver Film Studios and Bridge Studios (where Stargate: Atlantis is made) and if you are very lucky, you might catch a glimpse of something.

And really….who would want to interrupt them while they are busy making more of our favourite show?


  1. I chuckled when I saw this as my husband I are planning a vacation to Seattle April 29 through May 6. I wrote to the film studio to inquire about getting to see the Galactica set and of course, definitely not! I had to write twice to get the answer. Wish I had seen your info earlier! I will definitely check back often for any sightings of filming locations. Thanks for the info in the article. This will definitely be on our list of things to “see and do” when we visit Vancouver!

  2. Thanks Sandy! I’m working on articles about BSG filming sites at UBC and SFU, and I should have them up before you arrive, so if you end up having more time in the Lower Mainland, you can check out other places, too.
