This was such an informative museum and was so enjoyable because of the size! It doesn't take all day and you can visit it within an hour and a half. Definitely take the ferry ride to Grandville Island and have lunch. Wonderful time there!

A lot to do with the mounted police, their boats their uniforms, the history, maybe they should have called it the Mounti museum. Lots of boat models, lots of artifacts, and be sure to bump your head in the below desks mock up, I did.

This is a great museum with something for everyone and one of the best parts is the RCMP St. Roch, the boat that circumnavigated North America and explored the Arctic for years. You can clamber about the boat if you have the strength to haul...More

Based on several travel guide descriptions and the (particularly lame) official website, I had my doubts, but I had an extra hour to spare. Glad I did. The museum was built to house a single smallish restored ship, the SS Roch. {yawn...}, nominally a RMCP...More

Tucked away in Vancouver is a charming little museum erected around an old Royal Canadian Mounted Police boat, the St Roch, which circumnavigated North America by way of the Northwest Passage and the Panama Canal. Also on display are some wonderful model ships and a...More
