The Empress of Ireland exhibit is an important part of our nautical heritage. The Maritime Museum does an excellent job of telling the story of this historic event.

“Great maritime history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

This is a great place to visit if you love maritime history. The museum is well located within downtown Victoria and is easy to find. The displays are well laid out and the information contained in them is comprehensive. The admission fee is reasonable and the museum volunteers are very welcoming. It is quite easy to spend a few hours going through this museum. The museum displays are located over 3 floors. The building was a court house and a bank in the past, and one of the larger rooms on the the top floor is shown as a court room. Well worth a visit.

“Great Displays and information”

Learned so much that was specific to the area. Well displayed, well documented and loved having a puzzle to sit and work at to have a few minutes off our feet.

“Very pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014

Was talked into to going, thought it would be boring but it is not.
Thoroughly enjoyed my visit, lots to see and discover. It's very well laid out and you have to try the old elevator. Great place to spend a few hours.
