About This Activity/Attraction
Vancouver Maritime Museum
Logically located on the waterfront of Vanier Park is the Vancouver Maritime Museum. Opening its doors in 1959, the museum strives to present the seafaring history of Vancouver and and the Canadian Arctic. Within the walls of the museum, visitors will find models of historically significant vessels as well as actual artifacts from various expeditions. Notably present is the St. Roch, an arctic exploration vessel, as well as maritime art, a library and historical archives. The museum even hosts some of the hand drawn charts from the Pacific exploration by Captain Cook himself.
