Our Field Trips
Through the exploration of key events on the coast over the past two centuries, examine the factors which drew immigrants to British Columbia, and the social, economic and political challenges they faced in Canada.
Sail back in time and learn about women whose lives were changed by their journeys at sea. Lean what life aboard ship was like for women, the role they played in exploration, immigration and at times of war.
James Cook ranks among the world's greatest explorers and map makers. This history of long-distance travel by sea, the science of navigation, and the clashes between cultures are all discussed in this program.
Follow the change from privateers to pirates as war-time raiders became outright thieves. This enjoyable program deals with tactics, weapons, lifestyle, and the consequences for pirate who were caught.
Learn about shipboard life on the long and arduous voyages to Victoria’s harbour in the late 19th century. What were sailors expected to do? What tools did they use? How did they live? What did they do for fun?
This enlightening journey traces the development of Victoria, Bastion Square, and the old courthouse. In Bastion Square and the galleries of the Maritime Museum, hear the stories that have led many to believe that the building is haunted.
