The Maritime Museum of BC is a unique and intimate venue in Downtown Victoria on the territories of the Lekwungen-speaking Peoples. Our space is best fit for standing reception-style events, meetings, and small wedding ceremonies. We unfortunately do not have the facilities to offer a space for sit-down meals.
All rental inquiries are to be discussed with Museum staff prior to booking. An in-person tour of our space with Museum staff is highly recommended. After the tour, and after we have discussed your event needs with you, we will produce a complimentary custom quote. The information below provides a starting point for discussions.

- $375 for events and receptions

At least an hour before and an hour after each event will need to be booked in addition to the official event times to accommodate set-up and take down. Wedding ceremonies and other rentals requiring no equipment set-up are exempt from this requirement. An additional security fee may be required depending on the type and size of the event.
We offer discounts to our Corporate Members. Want more information about our corporate memberships?
