Vancouver Maritime Museum (Museum)

 

Vancouver’s strong seafaring heritage is celebrated at the Maritime Museum, housed in a small A-frame building at Vanier Park. The centrepiece of the museum collection is the beautifully restored schooner St. Roch built in 1928 to serve as a supply ship for RCMP detachments in the Arctic. St. Roch was the first ship to travel from Vancouver to Halifax via the treacherous Northwest Passage, and the first ship to completely circumnavigate the North American continent. The schooner is now a Canadian National Historic Site. Other museum exhibits focus on naval navigation, shipwrecks, lighthouses, model ships, and Captain Vancouver’s explorations. Kids will enjoy the fun and adventure at the Pirates Cove and the Children’s Maritime Discovery Centre. Just steps away from the museum building, Heritage Harbour is home to many unique ships, including Munin, a half-scale replica of a Viking ship.
