Vancouver Maritime Museum, Vancouver Reviews
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.
Fun place, but definitely geared more for adults then the younger kids. Exhibits are well done, with detailed models crafted with care, but the low level of interactive exhibits will lose the younger kids depending on that they find interesting. Other wise a well run ship that's unique within Vancouver
This place is small but really great. I got lucky and went on a quiet day so I had a personal tour of the St. Roch and that was super cool. I never thought a boat could have so many stories to tell. That is their major attraction but not the extent of their collection, so make sure to take a look around at everything else.
Great club where the annual UBC MBA sailing regatta was held. Breakfast was awesome!
The Vancouver Maritime Museum is everything Vancouver is. The best thing about it is how local it is, how it is all about Vancouver. It is a world class museum.
