  Maritime Museum Facade
by Jetgirly

Focusing on the history of martime activity around the Pacific Northwest, the Maritime Museum of British Columbia is a great place for history buffs and families. Small galleries are dedicated to themes such as pirates (who knew they terrorized the West Coast?), trading forts, whaling and shipwrecks. A model-ship area allows kids to climb a crowsnest and steer a ship.

The museum is open daily from 9:30 to 4:30, with hours extended by half an hour during the summer. Check the website.
