Vancouver Maritime Museum, Vancouver Reviews
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.
This place used to be more affordable before now it's too expensive and you cannot climb on the boat by yourself so it's a little Limited access the guide is retired a boat captain who is volunteering there and the he's good but I don't like when I go to Museum and when they don't allow me to have freedom to go wherever I want. You're used to have a free access before
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.
