The Maritime Museum of BC is located in a former provincial courthouse in old Victoria's Bastion Square. The 1889 building is now a National Historic Site which features the fully restored courtroom where former provincial Chief Justice Matthew Baillie Begbie - "The Hanging Judge" - once handed down his sentences.

The colourful story of BC's maritime history is told in various themed galleries, including Early Exploration, Whaling, Canadian Pacific Steamships, BC Ferries, and the Royal Canadian Navy.
