The Maritime Museum of British Columbia—Western Canada’s oldest Maritime Museum—is dedicated to telling the story of the province’s rich maritime heritage. Our collection showcases B.C.’s dynamic history seen through the lens of humankind’s relationship with the sea, from the First Peoples of this province, to journeys of exploration and adventure, to the CPR steamships that plied these waters, and everything in between.

Our new exhibit space at 634 Humboldt Street in Nootka Court showcases the best of our collection and extensive library and archives. It is guaranteed to be exciting and educational to veteran sailors and landlubbers alike.
