The Maritime Heritage Centre is a very interesting place. There is a glass blowing shop with local artisans making all kinds of unique glassware and jewellery. In the actual centre, there are all kinds of machinery looked after by many dedicated volunteers. Upstairs there is a large hall in which choirs sing, weddings take place, fundraisers happen, and you can watch cruise ships pass through the Discovery Passage in the summertime. The Maritime Heritage Centre is also the home to the boat that was on our Canadian five dollar bill. Many venues happen on the boat , especially students who visit as part of their Canadian history lessons. In the summer there is a farmer's market every Sunday on one of the parking areas in front of the Maritime Heritage Centre. Local produce and artisans sell a cornucopea of hand made items.The Maritime Hritage Centre is worth a visit, but check for hours of opening.
