To enrich lives, inspire a sense of wonder and deepen understanding of our maritime heritage and our interaction with the oceans in the past, present and future.
About Our Charity
The Vancouver Maritime Museum, located in beautiful Vanier Park on the shores of English Bay, has the mandate to be Metro Vancouver and the Lower Mainland’s link to the sea by providing exhibitions, programs and services from the past, the present and into the future, that enhance the public’s appreciation and understanding of the contributions of maritime arts, culture, industry, science and history to the development of British Columbia ports, Canada’s west coast as well as the Arctic.
The Vancouver Maritime Museum is a civic institution operated under a lease/grant arrangement by the Vancouver Maritime Museum Society. Support is also received from corporate and private donors, and volunteers from the community.
