Vancouver Maritime Museum, Vancouver Reviews
Good for what it is, just be aware it's not very large. I liked the models, the boat, and features, it's actually quite a good stop, and for most people worth the stop. I'm glad I came, and it would be 5 stars if it were even bigger. As is, maybe a 1 hr stop or so for most people.
Wow, what a gem if you've got kids under 5: free for them (14 bucks adult I think), huge play area, and the big boat (Roch) is super cool. Air conditioned. Can't eat or drink inside, have to check backpack in at front desk, only downside with the wee ones.
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.
