The Endeavour, a replica of the ship sailed by Captain Cook, visited the Maritime Museum October 1999
We spent a rainy Sunday July afternoon at the Vancouver Maritime Museum.
What a nice place for both adults and children. I enjoyed wandering
through the RCMP Arctic schooner St. Roch imagining being trapped by ice
in the Northwest Passage. Nathan loved the Shipwreck! display of
ancient and modern shipwrecks. Jen loved the underwater robot and
the computer games. Mom said she enjoyed it more than Science
