THE MARITIME MUSEUM OF BC IS now open Thursdays & Fridays from 10am - 5pm by appointment!

Float the Boat!

To help combat the financial difficulties faced due to the pandemic the Maritime Museum of BC is running a fundraising campaign called “Float the Boat”! This campaign has a goal of $25,000 and will run from January 15, 2021 to March 31, 2021. Throughout the campaign we will be marking milestones by filling the tank below with water to float the boat higher and higher. We’ll be posting updates so make sure to follow along!
