AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Vancouver’s economic mainstay is the topic of this shoreline museum south of False Creek. The highlight is the RCMP St. Roch, a sturdy schooner that was the first to navigate the Northwest Passage west to east over two winters during World War II. Clambering up and down the ladders, passages and decks of the St. Roch becomes much more fascinating when you consider that crew members were confined to these small spaces for months on end. Other exhibits include a tugboat bridge where you can pretend to guide a huge cargo ship into dock. Nearby, the Museum of Vancouver offers an engaging tour through the city’s history, which consists of a walk leading past reconstructions of early houses, sawmills, sundry shops and so on.
