Maritime Memorabilia
The Vancouver Maritime Museum is the principal maritime museum on the Pacific Coast of Canada. Dedicated to preserving the rich maritime history of this region, the museum features displays and exhibits which showcase nautical art, culture and technological advances.

Come Experience The Past
The interior of the museum is dominated by the RCMP schooner St. Roch, which was the first ship to navigate the Northwest passage in both directions, and the first to circumnavigate North America. Guests can wander over the ship, exploring the narrow corridors and imagining the historical voyages she took. The Children's Maritime Discovery Centre is devoted to teaching youngsters all about the sea. Other displays showcase nautical treasures, new and old, each attached to a fascinating tale of discovery.

Where Education Meets Fun
From Tugs with Tykes to Extreme Explorers and Overnight Adventures the Museum offers a wide range of education programs for kids of all ages. Check out their schedule online to pick what you want then dive right in.
