Dedicated to preservation and education, the Vancouver Maritime Museum strives to make learning fun for both kids and adults by incorporating hands-on displays, interactive features, and intricate models in its exhibits, which cover every kind of maritime interaction, from war ships to trading vessels to pirate ships and tugs.
The Museum features a wide array of objects, including Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) ship St. Roch. The St. Roch was built in 1928 to serve as a supply ship for Arctic RCMP detachments. In the early 1940s, St. Roch became the second ship in history to navigate the Northwest Passage and the first to travel that passage from west to east. It was also the first ship to circumnavigate North America, through the Panama Canal.
