Don't miss popping inside this amazing building. The lobby is a beautiful example of Art Deco and you are allowed to go in the delightful lifts to the second floor and take photos from a better angle.

The Marine building has been a Vancouver Icon for ever. What is unique about the building is the transportation art embedded into thje stone works surrounding the front of the building. From biplanes, to dirigibles to steam locomotives. The building provides you withy glimpse of our past circa 1930's

A nice old building, outside and in. Don't forget to pose outside like Clark Kent as this was used for the Daily Planet in Smallville

If you enjoy architecture this building has it all. We learned from a walking tour that it was modeled on the empire state building. The lobby is really stunning. Take the elevator to the second floor to get a different perspective.

The restored Marine Building is breath-taking, inside and out. Research its history and visit the lobby, you won't be disappointed.
