Throughout the week, the group tackles everything from boat trips and an IMAX film to ghost tours exploring Victoria's haunted fire hydrants.

Maritime Museum of British Columbia

Docked inside British Columbia's former Supreme Court building in Bastion Square, the Maritime Museum bridges visitors to the province's past with an affluent collection of nautical and legal treasures. More than 35,000 unique artifacts—plus 40,000 photographs—join forces to ferry eyes through history, including displays and exhibits that showcase notable pirates, explorers, heritage vessels, and shipwrecks. A fleet of three iconic sailboats has also dropped anchor beneath the museum's roof, and, despite its age and creaky knees from years of playing pond hockey, the oldest operating birdcage elevator in North America still volunteers to tote guests from floor to floor. Aside from its seafaring trove, the museum also runs public and school programs on topics such as immigration, pirates, and women at sea.

It was great... could be a bit bigger though. Our grand daughters loved the ghost tour.

Great little hidden gem. Would encourage others if a groupon was out again!

The Maritime Museum of British Columbia is a wonderful Museum in a heritage building with the oldest elevator in Canada. So, visitors are really getting to visit a museum within a museum. The exhibits are interesting and appeal to all ages and the gift shop has something for everyone. I definitely recommend the Maritime Museum of BC.
