Vancouver Maritime Museum Tours

Vancouver represents a long and varied history of human life connected to the sea. As such, the city’s maritime museum presents a rich depiction of Canada’s ties to the Arctic and Pacific Oceans from cultural to economic. Many historic ships and vessels ranging from arctic exploration boats to steamships and even a NASA underwater research vessel are on display. The St. Roch National Historic Site, the first ship to circumnavigate North America, is a highlight for many. There is also a large collection of model ships made from varying materials (even whale bone!)

Other exhibits explore a specific period of history, such as the quest for the Northwest Passage, or examine maritime art through the ages.  With over 15,000 artifacts in the permanent collection, the museum presents a comprehensive overview of Canadian maritime history. The space is family friendly, and has a maritime discovery center designated specifically for children.

Practical Info

The museum can be found on the waterfront in Vanier Park at Chestnut and Cypress Streets, not far from downtown Vancouver. The nearest ferry stop is Heritage Harbour, or you can walk along the Sea Wall from Granville Island in fifteen minutes. Open from 10 am to 5 pm, admission is 11 CAD for adults and 8.50 CAD for seniors and youth.
