Britannia Shipyard

Museum in Richmond & Steveston

A riverfront complex of historic sheds housing dusty tools, boats and reminders of the region's maritime past, this is one of the most evocative, fancy-free historic sites in the region. Check out the preserved Murakami House, where a large Japanese family lived before being unceremoniously interned during the war. Ask the volunteers plenty of questions: they have some great stories to tell.
