Vancouver Maritime Museum, Vancouver Reviews
I found this museum more like an overview of Maritime history and really more of a shrine to the St Roch. So in that understanding, it's a nice place with lots of artifacts from the ship and even the ship herself, sailed there to be a museum piece. It's a wonderful glimpse of life in a world of ice and hardship with several kid friendly zones. Don't plan on more than 2 hours though.
I think it's great way to spend a couple of hours learning about British Columbia's nautical history in the Maritime Museum! The museum is not very big but you will know a lot of different stories about Vancouver and its history. Definitely worth coming back!
The highlight of this museum is the massive ship it is built around. While there are great exhibits that offer you insight into some of the maritime history of Vancouver, I found it a little lacking. Would love to see more about how the maritime impacted Vancouver and the surrounding area. Kids will love it for the interactive areas and ability to move through with ease.
It's a smaller museum but I really liked the everything they had on display, the in house ship which you can go into, the model ships, the interactive lighthouse replica, as well as the ship "control room" replica. Although I will say the kids section where they had drawers with different items in it, seemed old and dirty. Still an enjoyable visit, however. Oh they also have a telescope looking out to the harbor which was nice.
The Vancouver Maritime Museum is located in Vanier Park, west of False Creek in the neighborhood of Kitsilano on the Vancouver waterfront. Some of the museum permanent exhibitions includes: The Historic arctic exploration vessel St. Roch used by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Extensive galleries of model ships, including the famous model of the French warship Vengeur du Peuple made of pork and beef bones. She was built by French prisoners during the Napoleonic period. Children's Maritime Discover Centre An extensive collection of maritime art including artworks by Emily Carr. A large library and archives. Chung collection: Material relating to Canadian Pacific Steamships Outdoor displays: NASA undersea research vessel, the boiler of the Beaver - the first steamship in the Pacific Northwest. Heritage Harbour.
