The Maritime Museum of BC tells the story of the province’s rich maritime heritage and culture. Our collection highlights BC’s dynamic history seen through the lens of humankind’s relationship with the sea, from the Indigenous Peoples of this province, to journeys of exploration and adventure, to the CPR steamships that plied these waters, and everything in between.
Our exhibit space is small, but we do rotate our exhibits two to three times a year. All of our exhibits feature digital interactives and hands-on activities. There are also interpretive staff ready to show you how to tie new knots, how different kinds of anchors work, and to answer any questions you might have.
We are pet freindly! Your furry friends are welcome to take in our exhibits as well, and can join you on our walking tours that go around the Inner Harbour.
