Education Kits

Bring the museum to your classroom with our new inquiry-based education kits. Each kit contains activities, worksheets, crafts and artifacts that support core competencies and connect with big ideas in the B.C. curriculum but can be adapted to fit other grades and ESL and ELL students. 

Our education kits are available throughout the year at a cost of $50 for a 3-week loan. To book your education kit, please email,  call 604-257-8304 or fill out our online booking form.

For Educators

We encourage educators to visit the Vancouver Maritime Museum exhibits before they bring a class or group of students for a visit or program. This is a great opportunity for you to consider how to structure your students’ time during a visit, what exhibitions to focus your curriculum on and what materials you may need to prepare.

Admission is free for teachers who have booked or are planning to book a school visit. Please email with your intended visit date and bring your active teacher’s ID on the day of your visit.

 Self-Guided Visit Resources

Worksheets are available to support and enhance your self-directed exploration of the museum. Please email to request a copy for your visit.
