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.
