Maritime Museum of British Columbia Review

In Victoria's original courthouse, these two floors of model ships, weaponry, ships' wheels, and photographs chronicle the province's seafaring history, from its early explorers to whale hunters to pirates. The place isn't as interactive as some museums, but if you have any interest in maritime stuff, it's pretty cool. Among the hand-built boats on display is the Tilikum, a dugout canoe that sailed from Victoria to England between 1901 and 1904. On the third floor, the original 1888 vice-admiralty courtroom looks ready for a court-martial. Oh yes, and check out the gilded elevator.
