Filling the culture void. The Vancouver Maritime Museum has created a pay-what-you-can evening to make arts and culture more accessible to all.
Originally a sponsored initiative with funding from Vancouver Foundation, the Maritime Museum has decided to continue to remain open 5pm–8pm on Thursday evenings.
“We’ve had such an incredible response from our neighbours and from new friends and visitors that we just had to extend Late Night Thursdays. We’re excited by the amazing number of people who are using the opportunity to get to know us for the first time or to reacquaint themselves with this wonderful piece of Vancouver. The atmosphere within the museum on these evenings is very special.”
Evenings by donation are common in many large cities (New York, London, Toronto) and are a great way for the Vancouver Maritime Museum to reach those who might not otherwise be able to visit. The Maritime Museum is focused on cultural and community engagement and is pleased to continue Late Night Thursdays by donation.
Stop by any Thursday (5pm and 8pm) and explore the unique exhibits and galleries by donation.
