Lonely Planet review

Built near Gastown in 1865, this wooden structure is Vancouver’s oldest surviving building. Originally a store for sawmill workers, it survived the Great Fire of 1886 and was used as a makeshift morgue that fateful day. Saved from demolition by locals, it was floated here in the 1930s and now houses an eclectic array of pioneer-era and First Nations exhibits.

Staffed by volunteers, this charming little neighborhood museum is well worth a visit if you're in the area. Ask them about the old kitchen chair: it also survived the Great Fire and is still on display.
