The Maritime Museum of British Columbia tells the story of the rich maritime heritage of British Columbia through extensive collections, a large library and archives, and a range of community and educational programs. The collection contains about 35,000 artefacts, with 800 model ships and various items linked to the province’s maritime heritage.
The reference library contains 6,000 volumes, including 200 historically significant titles, records of ship ownership and shipbuilding, naval records, logbooks, plans for 1,800 vessels, charts and maps, an art collection and more than 36,000 photographs. Most of the collection is protected in a climate-controlled space and a small number of artifacts is displayed in the Humboldt Avenue gallery and in travelling exhibits. Three small historic vessels that are part of the museum collection are stored in the outer harbor at Ogden Point.
