A small museum by European standards but very informative and well set out. I particularly liked the display featuring the original S Roch ship. One of three museums visited whilst in Vancouver and for me the best, though to be fair I do have an...More

Great place to view some Maritime history. Lots of displays and interesting to hear of the St Roch adventure over the polar north. Disappointed that they gave an extensive area to the Greenpeace organization but did not give equal billing to the whaling industry so...More

We bought a combined ticket for Museum of Vancouver, the space museum and planetarium are all next to each other, which is a good value. We thought it's very interesting and great for kids

Some interesting displays, but a wee bit boring. More interesting and scenic to step outside and walk the trail along the ocean.

We chose to visit this museum on a rainy day. We didn´t regret it. The artifacts are interesting, the short movie about the ship as well. The best part is that yoyu can enter the ship and explore it yourself! The second part of the...More

If you love maritime history, this is your museum. The film about the St. Roch and the ship itself are the big attractions here; otherwise, there's not that much to see. Note that there is no on-site food vendor. If you are planning to go...More
