Vancouver Maritime Museum, Vancouver Reviews - Write a Review
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.
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.
This museum provides a fascinating history to the people's and the discovery of Vancouver and Canada from a maritime perspectice. One special feature is that it houses the complete RCMP St. Roch vessel which was the first schooner to circumnavigate North America and second ship to go through the important Northwest Passage (it can be boarded and explored). The guided tours are especially informative. It is easy to spend half a day here. Onsite small pay parking lot.
$12.50, cheaper than its neighbour. Cool place to visit, get in for the video and access to the St Roch. After spending about half an hour with the ship, we were surprised to find there was another large section to the museum with interactive displays, great stories and model ships. More than we expected! This place is recommended. False Creek Ferry got us there from Downtown for $3.25 pp and we spent 2 hrs all up.
The beach is beautiful, I love the views and the barnacles on the rocks!
