Anchors Aweigh with the Library
Maritime Museum of BC family passes now available at Greater Victoria Public Library
Courageous explorers, uncharted waters, tragic shipwrecks. Greater Victoria Public Library cardholders can immerse themselves in British Columbia’s storied maritime heritage for free just by borrowing a pass from the library.
Twenty family passes to the Maritime Museum of British Columbia are available to borrow. The pass provides free general admission to the museum for two adults and up to three youth (ages 12-18), and children under 12 are free. Passes are valid for seven days and can be redeemed for a single visit.
The Maritime Museum of BC is the sixth partner in the library’s culture and recreation pass program.
The Maritime Museum of BC opened in 1955 as a naval museum adjacent to the HMC Dockyard in Esquimalt. Since 1965, it has enjoyed a downtown location to promote and preserve B.C.’s maritime heritage and showcase its collection of more than 70,000 items, including three sailboats – Dorothy, Trekka and Tilikum – each with its own incredible history.
GVPL’s pass program includes access to the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, the Royal BC Museum, the Robert Bateman Centre, Craigdarroch Castle, and Saanich Recreation Centres. The passes have been checked out more than 11,000 times.
